Hibs signing Kenneh grateful to former Leeds boss Bielsa

Nohan Kenneh is happy joining Hibs.

Leeds United academy graduate Kenneh has officially agreed to join SPL side Hibernian with his deal expiring this summer.

Kenneh said: "He (Bielsa) improved me a lot.

"For me, his style of play is different, more man for man and more intense. It's very intense, we did a lot of running - so, I'll be ready for pre-season, there's no doubt about that! But his style of play improved me as a player, it was very good for me."

The Liberian defender now hopes to use his experience gained whilst playing for Leeds' youth sides in the SPL.

He said: "It was an amazing experience, playing against men and seeing how good I was in men's football, because that's where I want to be. That's the main aim for any player, challenging yourself and going up against teams that have got better quality. Going into the games, I feel like I got more confidence as I went on and I feel like I did well, which was good.

"I've been around Leeds first-team for a while and I feel like this is the right step for me. It's massive but I feel like it's the right step for me and my family. The biggest thing for me now is just to kick on and work hard."
