Report: Leeds could offer Nohan Kenneh a new contract this summer
Leeds could offer Nohan Kenneh a new contract, with The Athletic reporting that the Whites are weighing up a decision on the 19-year-old’s future.
Kenneh is one of the only players within Jesse Marsch’s squad whose deal expires at the end of the season. Unsurprisingly, the other – Laurens De Bock – is set to leave after a torrid spell at Elland Road.
Kenneh is yet to make his first-team debut for the Whites. However, he has secured a place in folklore by being booked without playing a minute for Leeds. He was cautioned following the celebrations in the wake of the dramatic win at Wolves in March.
He has been a stalwart for the under-23s this season, being described as ‘formidable‘ after one recent display. So it is probably no surprise that Leeds are not rushing into a decision on his future.
According to The Athletic, he could be offered a new deal at Thorp Arch. But the club are currently weighing up whether they want to keep him.

Kenneh is in a strange position. If Leeds stay up, it would probably be less of a surprise if the Whites let him go. Unfortunately, they have a lot of options at centre-back. The likes of Charlie Cresswell and Leo Hjelde are still awaiting their opportunities.
If Marsch’s men are relegated however, Kenneh could perhaps move further up the pecking order. You would imagine that the likes of Diego Llorente and Robin Koch would leave Elland Road. And Pascal Struijk is a contender to perhaps follow them.
Kenneh also spent much of his career as a holding midfielder. So that will also be factored in should Kalvin Phillips leave Leeds in the summer.
