omeruo

If there were any hopes that Nigeria international defender Kenneth Omeruo would play any part for Chelsea this season, they appear to have been dashed at the moment as the club have not included his name in their latest official squad list. This suggests that the Nigerian defender might be heading out for another season on loan.

Omeruo was relatively impressive with the Nigeria national team at the ongoing World Cup in Russia, but it appears that his performance was not good enough to earn him a place in the Blues’ official squad list.

Omeruo will now train with Chelsea’s loan players when he arrives for pre-season or might be compelled to engage in talks that will fast-track a deal that sees him move to Belgian side KAA Gent, as reports have suggested that they are interested in him and have made contact with his agent.
