Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Deen-Conteh was born in Sierra Leone but grew up in Deptford, England, joining Chelsea at the age of 13.[2] He was a member of their UEFA Champion's League squad for the 2012–13 season, though he did not make an appearance for them.[3] After being released by the club in June 2013,[4] Deen-Conteh went on trial with Millwall in July 2013.[5]

He then signed for Greek club Ergotelis, where he made his professional debut.[6]

International career[edit]

Deen-Conteh represented England at youth international level, appearing for the U16 and U19 teams.[7] In March 2013 he committed his international football to Sierra Leone, the country of his birth, after being called up by their senior national team; however, he was unable to play due to an expired passport.[8] He was called up again in May 2013, alongside fellow Chelsea player Samuel Bangura.[9]
