Nigerian international and Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo has agreed a contract extension with Chelsea but will lace his boots for Turkish side Kasimpasa on a season long loan deal, this is according to report.
Omeruo joined Chelsea from Belgian side Standard Liege in the January of 2012 but he has spent the last four years on loan with Ado Den Hagg, Middlesbrough, Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor, having failed to impress any of the coaches at Chelsea.
The Super Eagles centre back had played for the kasimpasa in the penultimate season on loan and he’s now expected to make another debut for the Apaches as they are scheduled to lock horns with Akhisar Belediyespor in Sunday’s Turkish Topflight game.
Omeruo had returned to Chelsea this season full on hopes that he could impress Antonio Conte and you’d expect that the sale John Terry and Nathan Ake would pave way for him in the Blues squad. Alas, he has continued with his loan tours.
However, the 23-year-old Nigerian appears delighted with the move and he took to social media to make bare his mind on the move.
“God is Faithful. Happy to have renewed my contract with Chelsea until 2020 and also good to be back to Kasimpasa for one year,” Omeruo posted on Instagram.
Chelsea have made most of their players to sign extension before making loan moves and the reason is not far-fetched, to recoup funds if they’ll be transferred. Omeruo does not look like he has a future with Chelsea but we wish the lad goodluck.
