Leeds youngster made a positive impression.
Noah Kenneh made his first appearance with the senior team last night in Leeds United's friendly win over Guiseley.
Kenneh has been tipped for a move to Paris Saint-Germain by French website Soccer Link.
The website described the 16-year-old defensive midfielder as “one of the greatest talents of his generation”.
That's high praise, and Kenneh got a chance last night to show what he was about.
The 16-year-old came off the bench to slot in at centre-back, replacing loan star Ben White.
He made a strong impression, wowing supporters with his composure.
Kenneh is the reason Jansson was sold.— Johnboy (@_Johnboy_) July 11, 2019
Bielsa going to make a man of this young lad.#LUFC
White looks good, Costa impressive and great to see Kenneh impress as he could be an absolute superstar #lufc— Unofficial Leeds Utd (@uLUFC) July 11, 2019
Hope Alioski hasn’t done his knee in. White looked good until he went off in terms of ball carrying etc. Costa great finish. Kenneh some player he could be - CM normally but slotted in at CB and made some great tackles. Great energy by Shack. YP thrived with the (c)! #lufc— LUFC4LIFE (@Lufc4life1) July 11, 2019
It's a small start, a pre-season game against a non-league side. But he couldn't really have done much more.
Kenneh's performance will likely lead to more opportunities to show what he can do.
Leeds will face a tough battle to keep him from PSG's clutches.
If they can involve him in the first team, that will help Kenneh's desire to stick around at Elland Road.
