Jonjoe Kenny (born 15 March 1997)[4] is an English professional footballer who plays as a right-back for Premier League club Everton and the England under-21 team. He came through the youth system of the Premier League side, where he has been a professional since July 2014.[5]

Club career[edit]

Kenny signed on loan for League One side Wigan Athletic on 21 July 2015.[6] Having played seven times for the first team, he returned to Everton at the end of the loan, despite Wigan manager Gary Caldwell expressing a desire to extend the deal.[7]

On 27 January 2016, Kenny joined Oxford United of League Two, initially on a one-month loan,[8] later extended to the end of the season.[9]

He made his Premier League debut for Everton, coming on as a substitute for Matthew Pennington against Norwich City, on 15 May 2016.[10] His second Premier League appearance was again as a substitute, for Mason Holgate against Swansea City on 6 May 2017.[11]

International career[edit]

In May 2014, Kenny was part of the England under-17 side that won the 2014 UEFA European Under-17 Championship.[12] In the final, Kenny converted the match-winning penalty in the penalty shoot-out against the Netherlands.[12] He was named in UEFA's team of the tournament.[13]

Kenny was a member of the England squad for the 2016 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, starting in the semi-final defeat against Italy.[14]

Kenny was selected for the England under-20 team in the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He played in all seven matches of the tournament. In the final England beat Venezuela 1–0, which is England's first win in a global tournament since their World Cup victory of 1966.[15]
