Description:

Nohan Kenneh was born in Liberia but moved to England at the age of 7. He joined Leeds United youth academy in 2014 after impressing during a trial. He signed his first professional contract with the club in 2020 on his 17th birthday. Leeds’ coach Marcelo Bielsa likes to give youth a chance so it seems that first-team debut for such a talented player like Nohan is only a matter of time. He is also a regular English international and currently he is one of the leaders of England U-17 national team.
