Kevin Niclas Mensah (born May 15, 1991) is a Danish-Ghanaian footballer who plays for the Danish Superliga club Esbjerg fB, as a second striker and attacking midfielder.[1] He is son of a father from Ghana and a mother from Denmark. His brother Jeff Mensah also plays professional football. He holds both a Ghanaian passport and a Danish passport.

Mensah has previously been on trial at Premier League clubs Arsenal and Newcastle United for several laps despite his young age.[1] He plays the ball with both his right-foot and left-foot,[2] and is described by his club as a technical marvel, an elegant offensive player with a wonderful technique that makes him a crowd favorite in addition of a footspeed that makes him uncomfortable to handle for any defender.[1]
