Leon Bailey was born in on August 9, 1997, in Kingston, Jamaica. He first arrived on European shores in 2011, following his fathers interest in finding a club for himself and Leon.
Adolescence and Early Life
With little luck in the in the Netherlands, Austria or Germany, the travelling party ended up in Belgium at KRC Genk, where a trial was c,onducted in 2012.
Bailey’s performance was impressive, he was tied to a draft agreement at 15 years of age- but the deal was against the law in Belgium, a law regarding the registration of minors and following an investigation, a return to the Caribbean had to be made.
Refusing to concede defeat, though, the travelling party made their way back to Europe, several times, with Dutch giants Ajax reaching a verbal agreement in October 2013. Ajax manager Frank de Boer gave his account : “We tested him in different areas. In speed and agility he was already better than some guys of the first team. He’s so fast it’s not normal. His speed in combination with his technique is very rare. Exceptional. He has no weak points.”
Eventually , Bailey ended up signing for Slovakian side AS Trencin, before relocating back to Belgium at top-flight outfit Genk in 2015.
Bailey had two impressive seasons, resulting in 16 goals in 77 appearances, He also took home the “Belgina Young Player of the Year award” and a first taste of continental football in the Europa League, with those efforts enough to secure him a €20 million switch to Bayer Leverkusen in the 2017 January transfer window.
