Born a short walk away from Goodison Park, Jonjoe Kenny joined Everton’s Academy at the age of nine.

His versatility and composure on the ball saw him deployed at full-back, centre-back and in central midfield in progressing through the ranks - but he has since established himself as a right back.

Having represented England at youth level, he recovered from a broken collarbone just in time to make the Under-17s squad for the 2014 European Championship Finals.

Kenny lifted the trophy aloft alongside captain and fellow Blue Ryan Ledson after netting the shootout-winning penalty in the final against Holland.

In December 2014, Kenny was named on the bench for Everton's first-team game against FC Krasnodar. 

Having captained the Under-21s throughout 2014-15, he gained his first taste of senior action in pre-season at Swindon Town in July.

He spent the first three months of the 2015-16 campaign on loan at Wigan Athletic, before joining League Two outfit Oxford United in January for the remainder of the season.

He played 20 games for the Yellows, helping Michael Appleton's side gain promotion to the third tier as runners-up.

Kenny then returned to Everton and was handed his senior debut off the bench when David Unsworth and Joe Royle took charge for the final game of the season, a 3-0 home victory over Norwich.

The Kirkdale-born youngster spent the majority of the 2016/17 season with Unsworth, captaining the Under-23s all the way to the Premier League 2 title, while also making a solitary first-team appearance - away at Swansea City - towards the end of the term. 

Kenny went on to establish himself as an Everton first-team player in 2017-18, making 25 senior appearances and deputising superbly for Seamus Coleman while the Republic of Ireland captain was sidelined with a broken leg.
 

His performances were rewarded when he penned a new four-and-a-half-year deal with the Club in December 2017. 

Kenny was also recognised with the Supporters' Club Young Player of the Season award in May 2018.

The defender made 12 first-team appearances in 2018-19 and was named in the England Under-21 squad for the Under-21 European Championship in Italy and San Marino.

In June 2019, it was announced Kenny will spend the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Bundesliga club Schalke 04.

Contracted until: June 2022
