WHAT HAPPENED? The United States international arrived in the Premier League from Juventus during the January transfer window, with an initial loan agreement allowing him to be reunited with fellow countrymen Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson. McKennie has been enjoying himself in England, with a remarkable touch during a pre-match warm-up caught on camera by a Leeds supporter as the 24-year-old midfielder ended up standing on top of the ball.
