Club careerEdit

Pedersen started his youth career at Aabybro IF, before moving to Jetsmark IF – a club affiliated with Aalborg Boldspilklub (AaB). At the age of 12 he joined the AaB youth team. He made his senior debut for the reserve team in the Denmark Series, the fourth tier of Danish football.

In the spring of 2013, he made his first team debut in the Danish Superliga where he also scored his first official goal as a senior.[2]

In the 2015–16 pre-season Kasper signed a 4-year contract with AaB in which he was considered a permanent replacement for defender Rasmus Thelander, who was sold to Greek Panathinaikos on the same day.[3]

On 15 January 2021, Pedersen joined Danish 1st Division club Esbjerg fB on a deal until June 2023.[4]
