Leeds United fans will hope Nohan Kenneh can follow footsteps of Fabian Delph

Leeds United’s talented midfielder is currently on international duty where he bumped into Delph.

Leeds United have plenty of top young talent coming through the ranks at present. But one player who appears to be exciting fans and pundits alike more than others is Nohan Kenneh. 

The Liberian-born talent has been impressing in the Leeds youth academy in recent months and is currently with the England under-18s at St Georges’ Park.

Whilst there he has managed to catch up with a former Leeds star who was with the senior England team, until an injury saw him have to withdraw yesterday. 

As posted on his Instagram account, Kenneh met up with former Leeds midfielder Fabian Delph. 

Kenneh, who was linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this year, appears to have all the talent to become a first-team player for Leeds, just like Delph did. 


The Everton man came to the fore in Leeds’ 2008-09 League One campaign but when the Whites fell short, it soon became clear he was not going to be sticking around. 

At the time, Leeds were something of a mess and Delph ended up joining Aston Villa for a fee reported by The Guardian to have been in the region of £8 million.

Kenneh has all the attributes that made Delph such a promising youngster at Leeds. He is technically gifted, strong and has an eye for a goal. But most of all, he appears driven, something which always saw Delph stand out from the rest. 

With Leeds in a much better place now then when Delph made his breakthrough, Leeds fans will hope Kenneh sticks around a lot longer than their former talent did. 

If so, then Leeds could have a top talent on their hands for years to come.
