On Friday 26th August 2016, we announced the signing of Neeskens Kebano on a three-year contract, with a Club option for an additional 12 months.
The attacking midfielder, who can operate in a variety of roles, arrived from KRC Genk for an undisclosed fee.
Born in France, Kebano spent time at the illustrious Clairefontaine academy, where he attracted the attention of Paris Saint-Germain. After some time with ASA Montereau, he joined the French giants’ youth setup in the summer of 2006.
After winning numerous trophies during his time in PSG’s academy, he made his first team debut at the age of 18 in 2010/11, and went on to appear in their UEFA Europa League campaign that season.
He spent a brief time on loan at Caen in 2012/13, and then joined Belgian outfit Charleroi at the end of the season on a permanent deal.
It was there where he began to capture his best form and, having scored regularly across his two seasons at the club, joined Genk in the summer of 2015, helping them to a fifth place finish in his solitary campaign with the side.
A French international from Under-17 to Under-20 level, he’s since switched his allegiance to the Democratic Republic of Congo, making his debut in October 2014.
