Pre-Chelsea career

Kasey spent the most notable part of his youth development at Charlton Athletic.

Chelsea career

Having impressed against Chelsea during the 2012-13 FA Youth Cup, Kasey joined Chelsea in March 2013. He made his Under-18 debut against Manchester United in April 2013.

A first choice in midfield in 2013-14, he was central to an excellent start to the Under-18s' season, scoring and providing goals in plentiful supply. Like some of his youth team standout team-mates, he was given early opportunities to test himself at Under-19 and Under-21 levels as a first year. A mid-season injury slowed his progress somewhat but as he regained fitness towards the end of the season he became an influential super-sub in the Under-21 Premier League title success and the club's run to yet another FA Youth Cup victory.

2014-15 saw Kasey put together his own Goal of the Season competition as he racked up a succession of spectacular long-range goals, many of them clustered around a month-long stretch of irrepressible mid-season form. He outgrew Under-18 football and pushed into Adi Viveash's Under-21 squad whilst being a useful contributor from the bench once against in the successful FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League campaigns.

As one of the more senior players in the 2015-16 group, much was expected of him and he delivered in droves. An early-season hat-trick against Liverpool set the tone for a season which saw him score 16 goals - including even more highlight-reel efforts - including the winner in the 2015-16 UEFA Youth League Final against Paris Saint-Germain. Such were his irrepresible displays that he worked his way into the first team group on a permanent basis and he was handed the number 38 shirt for end-of-season appearances on the substitutes' bench.

International

Kasey has been capped by England at every level from Under-17 to Under-20 levels and in May 2016 received his first Under-21 call-up for the Toulon Tournament.
