Omeruo rejoins Chelsea Monday


Nigeria defender, Kenneth Omeruo will rejoin English Premier League side Chelsea on Monday after holidaying in Nigeria and he has not yet agreed personal terms with Turkish champions, Besiktas.

“Kenneth will rejoin Chelsea for training on Monday,” a source told AfricanFootball.com

“His loan move to Besiktas is going well but nothing has been agreed because he has not discussed personal terms with the Turkish club.”

As earlier reported, Besiktas cannot buy the Nigeria international defender outrightly because they will run foul of the UEFA financial fair play and so the loan deal.

However, they could have the option to buy him from Chelsea at the end of the season-long loan at the Istanbul giants.

Omeruo has so far been loaned out by Chelsea to Dutch club ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough and Kasimpasa of Turkey.

Omeruo’s last club Kasimpasa have an option to buy him permanently at the end of last season but cannot afford him.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winner is on the 35-man provisional squad for the Rio Olympics in August.
