Leeds have been drawn against the Shropshire side, whom Kenneh has just joined, in the Carabao Cup First Round.
Kenneh chose to leave Leeds on a free transfer last summer despite not having made a senior appearance for the club whose academy he came through. After a brief spell in Scottish Premiership side Hibernian’s first-team, he was loaned out to fellow top flight outfit Ross County for the second half of the 2022/23 campaign.
This year, Kenneh will represent the Shrews at New Meadow – his first foray into English league football. It is expected, injuries permitting, he will be included in the matchday squad when Shrewsbury come to Elland Road in just over three weeks’ time.
New head coach Matt Taylor said of Kenneh’s arrival: “I’m extremely happy that as a club we have managed to secure Nohan’s signature.
“There were lots of other clubs interested in him which means he is fully invested with us this season.
“He is a very athletic, physical player with excellent technical ability who is fully aware of his role within the team and the squad.
“I know I say this every time we sign a player, but first and foremost he is an exceptional person which is so important.”
