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 irrepressible 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.

2016-17 saw him head out on loan and join Huddersfield Town for the duration of the season. He scored on his debut and never looked back, turning in some scintillating performances before Christmas, only for a hamstring injury to effectively wipe out the second half of his season. He was able to return in the Championship Playoff Final, where he helped Huddersfield to defeat Reading on penalties to secure promotion to the Premier League.

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.
