Nigeria International Defender Omeruo Makes His Return To Chelsea OfficialPublished: May 15, 2018
Nigeria international Kenneth Omeruo has made his return to English Premier League side, Chelsea, official after announcing his departure from Turkish club Kasımpaşa S.K. on Tuesday, May 15.
The versatile central defender returned for a second loan spell with Kasımpaşa in August 2017 and ended the season with 28 league appearances, scoring one goal against Konyaspor.
Omeruo's decision to return to the Apaches has proved to be the right one as he has earned a spot on Nigeria's preliminary World Cup roster after he was omitted from the Super Eagles squad for their first game of the 2017-2018 campaign against Cameroon as a result of his inactivity for Chelsea's first team during pre-season training.
''I want to say a big thanks to players, staffs, and management of Kasimpasa sk for believing in my abilities as a player... and the coach for helping me achieve my personal goal this season,'' Omeruo posted on his official Instagram account.
''I am grateful and wish this amazing club a much better position next season.. ❤️.''
Omeruo previously enjoyed loan spells at ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough FC and Alanyaspor.
