Kevin Osei (born March 26, 1991) is a French-born Ghanaian professional footballer, currently playing for Carlisle United.[1]


Kevin joined Marseille when he was 12 from Olympique Saint Maximinois. He went through their youth system, winning many youth trophies, including "Championnat National des 16 ans"[2] (Under 16 National Championship), after reaching with his team in 2008 the Under 16 final stage for the first time in Marseille's history.[3] He went on to join Marseille's first team in 2009, after signing an "Elite" contract[4] (2 years as a trainee and 3 years as a professional). His first professional match with Marseille was against AEL Limassol in the UEFA Europa League[5]


Osei signed a six-month contract with Belgian Jupiler Pro League club Beveren on January 2015.[6][7]

Carlisle United[edit]

Osei penned a six-month deal with the option to extend on July 28th, 2015 with English League Two club Carlisle United following a successful trial spell.[8]


Osei has expressed his desire to play for Ghana.[9][10][11] He was meant to take part in the 2011 African Youth Championship, but because of delays in obtaining his Ghanaian passport, he wasn't eligible to play for the Ghana U20 national team.[12] He continues to follow Ghanaian national teams in every competition they are engaged in.[13]
