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.

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.
