Christopher Louis Palmer (born 16 October 1983) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Burton Albion.

Palmer was born in Derby and attended Derby Moor Community School. He began his professional career with Derby County, but did not establish himself as a first-team member so he joined Notts County in 2004, from where he went out to Hereford United on loan for a month, making three appearances. He was given a first team place on his return, making 24 appearances, and scoring four goals, for Notts County.

Palmer signed for Wycombe Wanderers in the summer of 2006. He initially held down a place in the first team, but struggled to win back his place after a shoulder injury. He went on loan to Darlington in August 2007. After being released by Wycombe he signed for Walsall on 1 August 2008, after a successful trial period with the club.

On 6 July 2009, Palmer signed a two year contract at League One side Gillingham.

On 17 June 2011, Palmer signed a two year contract at League Two side Burton Albion after declining a contract with his old club.
