Omeruo joins Besiktas on loan

English Premier League club, Chelsea has again loaned out Kenneth Omeruo to Turkish champions, Besiktas ahead of the new season.

This will mean his fourth loan spell away since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2012 and could well be his last as Besiktas could snap him up on a permanent basis should they be impressed after his season-long loan with them.

The Black Eagles are expected to pay Omeruo €1.1 million salary over the course of next season.

The Nigerian international has previously played on loan at Dutch club ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough and Turkish club Kasimpasa.

At Middlesbrough, who incidentally will in the new season be playing in the Premier League, a slump in form after a bright start with the then English Championship outfit ruined his chances of getting a look-in back at Chelsea.

But his loan spell at Turkish club Kasimpasa last season has reignited his career if not with ‘The Blues’ of London at least at Besiktas, a bigger and more ambitious than Kasimpasa.

He was solid in the heart of the back four, making a total of 25 appearances for Istanbul side, Kasimpasa as they finished an impressive seventh last season for Besiktas to take notice.

Besiktas will therefore get a central defender, who already knows what is expected of him in the Turkish Super Liga and who has regained his self-belief and focus.

Omeruo in turn has a chance to shine at a club who will feature in the UEFA Champions League after they clinched their 14 league championship in fine style by putting in the shade city rivals Fenerbache.
