Background: Product of the Reading Youth Academy who played briefly for The Royals First Team during season 1999/2000 before spending loan spells at both Swansea City and Cheltenham Town during the 2001/2 season - helping the latter to gain promotion through the play-offs. Went on to play for the England Under 20 side but seemed to be cast aside at Reading on the arrival of new boss Steve Coppell in September 2003 and eventually joined Wycombe on loan in January 2004.

Spent three successful months on loan at Wycombe before Manager Tony Adams managed to secure him on a two year contract at Wycombe. Despite the final fee being undisclosed, it's has since been established that the final total payment to Reading was in the order of £140,000, paid in instalments, with Reading also getting 25% of any profit made any subsequent sale. The deal also included two of Wanderers' Centre of Excellence players (Simon Church and Alex McCarthy) transfering to the Reading Academy.

Following his move to Wycombe he was linked with possible moves to Club's higher in the divisions, including West Brom, Cardiff City, Manchester City and Ipswich Town. With his contract at Wycombe due to expire at the end of the 2005/6 season, those stories only grew in stature as the season progressed, culminating in a loan move to Nottingham Forest announced on Friday 11th November 2005. The deal became permanent in the January 2006 'transfer window' meaning that Tyson finished with a record of just over a goal every other game during his near two year spell with the Wanderers.

On 3 July 2017, Wanderers announced that Tyson had returned to the Club on trial. After playing in some of Wycombe's pre-season friendlies, it was announced on 25 July 2017 that the now 35 year-old had signed a one-year deal to return on a permanent deal at Adams Park. Despite an injury set-back he managed battle his way back to fitness and be a vital part of the Wanderers squad for the remainder of the season. On 23 April 2018, it was announced that Tyson had signed a one-year extension to his contract (now running until June 2019).

Commenting on extending Tyson's contract in April 2018, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: "Nathan has had a fantastic season for us so far and proved to everyone that he still possesses the pace and ability in front of goal that has helped him enjoy a long and successful career. He overcame a serious injury in October [2017] and worked hard to battle back to full fitness within two months, and his experience – particularly in recent weeks – has been hugely important in our frontline, helping us collect some valuable points which we hope will help us achieve our goal this season. Tys is a popular lad in the changing room and fits in well with the culture we’ve got here, so it wasn’t a difficult decision at all to reward him with a new contract and we know he’ll continue to have a big part to play next season.”

The following weekend [28th April 2018] he netted a crucial first-half stoppage time equaliser in the match at Chesterfield - the match ending with victory for Wanderers and promotion to 'League One'. He finished the his first campaign back at Adams Park with a record of 7 goals in 33 appearances - his total goals in a Wycombe shirt then topping the 50 mark from just over 120 appearances.

The 2018/19 campaign in League One saw another injury affected season - with just one goal netted in 19 appearances (9 of those apps from the bench). On 8th May 2019 it was announced he would be released when his contract expired at the end of June 2019.
