La Liga Segunda Division side Club Deportivo Leganes has signed 18-year-old Albanian-American defender Henry Hysenagolli to a contract with their Under 19 squad.
Henry was born in New York City to Albanian parents, giving him the option to play for either country’s national team. He has already gained some experience with the Albanian National Team’s U19s. The New Yorker is strong in his tackles and technical on the ball while showing the pace and agility needed to compete with top forwards.
Hysenagolli is coming from the American side FA Euro who is featured in the United Soccer League’s Championship division. The club’s Brooklyn home is where Henry was seen by Superior Squad Sports Management Scout. SSSM tracked Henry’s game for a long period of time before representing him under Superior Squad. The agency then shared his talents with clubs in Europe before agreeing to terms with Leganes.
Henry has already joined and began training with his new teammates and is in the process of completing his last year of high school while in Spain.
The surrounding club environment will only improve Henry’s game and develop him within a notable Spanish side.
