Working solution for you -

DECLARE @Rowcount as int
DECLARE @sql AS NVARCHAR(500)
DECLARE @def nvarchar(500);
DECLARE @Table Nvarchar(50)

set @table = N'Account'
set @sql = N' select @Rowcount = count(*) FROM ' + @Table;
SET @def = N'@Rowcount INT OUTPUT';

exec sp_executesql @sql,@def, @Rowcount=@Rowcount Output
