Like Kenneh, the recent Everton acquisition started out in Leeds United’s youth ranks.
The young Leeds United midfielder Nohan Kenneh bumped into a former White at an England training camp this week. Kenneh, who is currently with the Three Lions’ Under-18 side, added a selfie with the Everton midfielder Fabian Delph, who is with the seniors, to his Instagram story on Monday.
A caption read: “Don’t forget your roots’.

Although from Bradford, Delph grew up a Leeds fan and played 58 times for United before his 2009 move to Aston Villa.
He has since had spells at Manchester City and Everton – whom he joined in an £8.5 million deal after winning the league under Pep Guardiola last season.
And Delph’s career – throughout which he has won 20 England caps – is one that Kenneh will aspire to emulate.
The Liberia-born teenager is still awaiting his Leeds debut, but he is already highly-rated and was said to be interesting Paris Saint-Germain earlier this year [Soccer Link].
Delph signed a deal until 2022 with Everton, taking him beyond his 32nd birthday.
