Kenneh has taken to Instagram to announce that he will leave Leeds after eight years with the Whites. He expressed his disappointment that he is going and that he did not get the opportunity to experience more with the fans.

The 19-year-old also poked fun at the yellow card he picked up this season. Kenneh secured his spot in Leeds folklore by being booked without making his first-team debut. He was cautioned following the celebrations after Luke Ayling scored the dramatic winner over Wolves.

Plenty of teammates have responded to Kenneh following his post. Phillips sent a wordless reaction, while Struijk wished the versatile holding midfielder well…

Kenneh leaving Leeds this summer

Reports had claimed that Leeds were weighing up offering Kenneh a new contract. So his departure may not come as a huge surprise to everyone.

It is a shame that Kenneh was not quite ready to make that next step after impressing for the under-23s. But there will be plenty of Leeds supporters keeping a keen eye on the next stages of his career.
