Born in Novi Sad, Sedlar passed the youth school of FK Vojvodina. He started his senior career playing with local clubs Borac and Indeks. Later he moved in the Serbian League Vojvodina club, Veternik, where he made 14 appearances for the 2011–12 season.
Sedlar joined Metalac for the 2012–13 season. He collected 21 Serbian First League appearance and made also 2 cup matches.
For the difference of previous season, while he played mostly as a midfielder, Sedlar got the new role, and in new season, he was used usually as a defender. Sometimes, he also was moved to left-back position while he has played as a midfielder, so positions in defense were no strage for him. Later, he was rotated on centre-back position, but he was not the first choice, so he made only 3 league caps and one cup match for the autumn half of season. After changing coach, formation was changed too, and Metalac was playing with 3 centre-backs for the better part of spring half-season. Sedlar played all matches in that period, and his position was something like Emre Can's in Liverpool for 2014–15 season. He made total 20 appearances until the end of season, including 18 league, 1 cup, and 1 play-off match.
In the 2014–15 season, Sedlar was in group of the most important players for Metalac, with 26 league caps. He also played on some different positions as in the past, but all of 26 matches he started on the field and scored 2 goals, against Jedinstvo Putevi, and Javor Ivanjica. He also played 2 cup matches, against and Napredak and Voždovac, and 2 play-off matches after then Metalac promoted in Serbian SuperLiga.
Sedlar made his SuperLiga debut in the 1st fixture of 2015–16 season as a centre-back, in tandem with Vladimir Otašević. In the 7th fixture he scored a goal in away win against Spartak Subotica. In the 9th fixture he also scored an away goal, against Vojvodina. Sedlar missed some matches in the first half season because of injury, but beginning of December, the media reported Red Star Belgrade has expressed interest in him. Later, after the end first half of season, appeared the information that Partizan interested too. During the season, Sedlar played mostly matches as a team captain, and was one of the most important players in roster. Sedlar was also selected in the team of the season by Sportski žurnal.
