Omeruo Joins CD Leganes On One-Season Loan From Chelsea

By Johnny Edward:
Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has joined Spanish top division side, CD Leganes on a season loan deal from Chelsea, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Omeruo completed his short term switch to Mauricio Pellegrino’s side on Wednesday and took part in the club’s photograph session which was posted on the club’s official Twitter handle on Wednesday.


He will be presented on Friday at the club’s Butarque Sports Facility.


Leganes will have a buy-option on Omeruo set at €5m, but complete with a 20% sell-on clause as well should he transfer out from Leganes in the future.

The 24 year old Omeruo is one of the 30 players sent out on loan by Chelsea for the 2018/19 season.

The Nigeria international was part of Nigeria’s squad to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia where he made two appearances against Iceland and Argentina.

Omeruo joined Chelsea in 2012, and has since endured loan spells in Holland, Turkey and England,

The Nigeria defender has never featured for Chelsea’s first-team.

    Please omeruo use leganes as a platform to get a better club because your future lies away from Stamford bridge so don’t waste time coming back after the loan but make it a permanent one and hope for a switch to a better team, have a wonderful loan spell

    God bless Nigeria

    Terrific move…..

  • decent move… I have always felt he was cut for a better league than the Turkish league especially taking into consideration his exploits in his early days..this move i feel should be a stepping stone onto bigger things, I hope he takes advantage of this..in other news Victor Moses has called time on his international career

    Great move! Things are looking up for our players. Just read from another site that William Troost-Ekong has joined Udinese.
    Before these two I was wondering why it seemed that our players that didn’t attend the World Cup were making better moves than those that attended. Now I can relax!
    Meanwhile in other news, Victor Moses has announced his retirement from international football.

    CSN, What about Victor Moses news? It shocking……Am sad

    • Moses is retiring from International (Country) football

    • Chairmanfemi, the Moses news is already on this site. Just click on the ‘news’ tab on top of the Main page and it should come up.
      Incidentally, in in 1XBet banner adverts on this site, only Victor Moses is wearing the dark green jersey.
      I guess we should have read from that that something ‘bad’ was about to happen……

  • Congratulations.. Nice move better than staying without playing…

  • Great loan deal for Omeruo,a step in the right direction. 
    I hope he’ll make the most of the move and make the move permanent eventually .
    I’m quite certain the attractions and quality of a la liga is far more rewarding than Turkey’s.

    It’s also heartwarming that Nigeria players are attracting interests from La LIGA clubs.
    Simon MOSES is another Nigeria addition to La LIGA, not forgetting Chukwueze Samuel.
    Good luck to them.
