Jonjoe Kenny (born 15 March 1997)[4] is an English professional footballer who plays as a right-back for Bundesliga club Schalke 04, on loan from Premier League club Everton. He has also represented England at under-21 level. 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]

Kenny began the 2017/18 season as 4th choice under Ronald Koeman, however soon impressed when given his chance. He made his first Premier League start on the 22nd October at home to Arsenal in a 5-2 defeat. Following Koemans sacking, he made 13 consecutive starts in the league, playing in 16 out of 19 games from October until the return of Seamus Coleman in January. He played 25 games in all competitions.

The following season began with Kenny as back up to Coleman, before impressing as the Irishman suffered with a foot injury. He played 4 Premier League games in a row. Following the win away to Leicester on 6th October, he was dropped out of the starting XI and didn't play again until New Year's Day, again against Leicester, this time in a 1-0 defeat. He kept his place for an FA Cup 3rd round win over Lincoln City. He returned the XI on the 28th January in a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town, coming on as a makeshift left back for the final 20 minutes, following an injury to Leighton Baines and a red card for his substitute Lucas Digne. He continued at left back against Wolves 4 days later, coming on for Leighton Baines on the 20th minute. After impressing, he played the following 2 matches against Man City and Watford in which he picked up the Man of the Match award.

On 10 June 2019, Kenny signed for Schalke 04 on a season-long loan from Everton.[12]

International career[edit]

In May 2014, Kenny was part of the England under-17 side that won the 2014 UEFA European Under-17 Championship.[13] In the final, Kenny converted the match-winning penalty in the penalty shoot-out against the Netherlands.[13] He was named in UEFA's team of the tournament.[14]

Kenny was a member of the England squad for the 2016 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, starting in the semi-final defeat against Italy.[15]

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.[16]

In May 2019, Kenny was named in the England Under-21 squad for the UEFA European U-21 Championship in Italy and San Marino. Kenny was among three Everton players that were named as Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Kieran Dowell were also included in the 23-man squad.[17] Kenny scored a stunning strike and England's third during a 3-3 draw with Croatia at the San Marino Stadium on 24 June 2019.
