Omeruo completes Kasimpasa loan move


Turkish side, Kasimpasa, have completed the signing of Chelsea’s Nigerian international defender, Kenneth Omeruo, on a season-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old joined Chelsea in 2012, but he is yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Blues.

He spent last season on loan with Middlesbrough.

“The target is to get a lot of playing time and help Kasimpasa achieve their objectives. I’ve come to Turkey to reciprocate the club’s determination to bring me here,” Omeruo told BBC Sport.

“I want to show the manager and the fans that they have made a good choice and I am completely focused on breaking into the squad and prove myself here.

“They have strong faith in my ability and I need to prove it. Last season was difficult because of injuries which affected me both at club and international level but I have put all that behind me.”

Omeruo has 28 caps for his country, and started all four of Nigeria’s games at the 2014 World Cup.
