Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE so I can get credited for my time.
He will be allowed to apply for a indefinite leave to remain from inside of the UK. He should provide evidence that he has been in the UK since 2010 and the reasons why he has not applied for indefinite leave to remain earlier ie not having enough funds to afford the application fee.
He should also provide reasons why it would not be just for him to apply from outside of the UK. ie Children upbringing? Supporting his wife in the Uk and any time spent apart will be detrimental to the family.
I hope this answers your question, if so, kindly rate my answer positively so I can get credited for my time.
