Strong centre back with plenty of pace
An ideal blend of talent and work ethic won Ash Kigbu a scholarship at City in July 2015.
A left-footed centre-back, his strong defending has won him plaudits across the Academy, with his pace and athleticism making him a nightmare for opposition attackers.
Ash joined City as a 13-year-old in 2012, and his commanding displays at the heart of defence have caught the eye of a number of other Premier League sides.
A local lad and graduate of the St Bede’s programme, the defender will be hoping to make an impact in league and cup in his first year as a full-time footballer.
