Dereck Kutesa (born 6 December 1997) is a Swiss professional footballer who plays as a winger for Stade de Reims in the Ligue 1.

Club career[edit]

Kutesa made his professional debut in the Swiss Super League for FC Basel on 5 March 2017 in a game against FC Vaduz.[1] Under trainer Urs Fischer Kutesa won the Swiss Super League championship at the end of the 2016–17 season. For the club this was the eighth title in a row and their 20th championship title in total.[2] They also won the Swiss Cup for the twelfth time, which meant they had won the double for the sixth time in the club's history.[3]

On 14 September 2017, Basel announced that they were loaning out Kutesa to FC Luzern, until the end of the 2017–18 Swiss Super League season, so that he could gain first team playing experience.[4]

International career[edit]

Kutesa is of Angolan descent.[5][6] He participated in the 2014 UEFA European Under-17 Championship with the Switzerland national under-17 football team.
