Mohammed Fellah (born May 24, 1989 in Oslo) is a Norwegian footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Vålerenga. Fellah scored in his debut for Vålerenga in Tippeligaen on September 10, 2006 in a match against Fredrikstad.

Fellah was born and raised in Holmlia, a multicultural satellite town in southern part of Oslo. He started his football career with local side Holmlia SK and caught admirers already in his youth with his eminent technique. He started out as a striker and reminded many of Raúl due to similarities in height and technique. Being inspired by Zinedine Zidane's success with Real Madrid he eventually, while still at Holmlia SK, decided to start playing in a playmaker role in midfield.

Of Moroccan descent, Fellah has also played for the Norway U-17 national team in qualifiers for the 2006 UEFA European U-17 Championship, scoring the first goal for Norway in their 3-1 win over Liechtenstein. The Norwegian U-17 coach, Øyvind Nilsen, said in March 2006 that Fellah was the fourth best player of his age group, behind Kim André Madsen, Per Egil Flo and Tommy Høiland.

Fellah was badly injured in an U18-match against Turkey in August (2007), where he broke his calf bone. His team played Turkey twice in three days. In the second game, Serdar Aziz broke Fellah's leg. Fellah required surgery, and lost the rest of the 2007 season. The injury would not heal properly, and the fall of 2008 he had to operate again. Fellah came back fully in the 2009 season where he played in total 23 games in Tippeligaen. He delivered at times very good performances, showing off his eminent shot technique on several occasions, as in the 4-1 victory against Lyn in September, 2009.

Fellah has started all 14 games so far in the 2010 season of Tippeligaen and has been voted man of the match in three of the games by Norwegian newspaper VG. During this period he has also established himself as an important player in the central midfield of the U-21 team of Norway, and has even been tipped by the media to take the step up to the national team.
