Kwame Quee (born 9 July 1996) is a Sierra Leonean footballer who plays as a midfielder for Víkingur Reykjavík, on loan from Breiðablik, as well as the Sierra Leone national team.

Club career[edit]

In June 2016, Quee underwent a three-week trial with Danish side Randers FC, along with three other teammates from Johansen.[1]

In May 2017, Quee was loaned out to Icelandic club Víkingur Ólafsvík on a two-year deal.[2][3] He made his debut on 15 May against Grindavík, although he was sent off in the 82nd minute after seeing his second yellow card of the match.[4] His first goal with Víkingur came in his third game, where he flicked in a header from close range against Breiðablik.[5] He scored his second goal the following month, during a 2-1 win against Stjarnan.[6]

In January 2019 Quee signed for Icelandic top flight club Breiðablik. After just two appearances with the club, he was loaned out to Víkingur Reykjavík in June.[7][8] He won the 2019 Icelandic Cup with Víkingur.
