Omeruo revealed while he chose Leganes over a number of Turkish Super Lig sides,especially Bursaspor who claimed the deal for the player was alsmost 90% done at a stage.

‘I decided to come here because of the quality of the league and also because of the effort of the gaffer,Mauriccio Pellegrini who convinced me to come here,” he said.

Omeruo is unlikely to make his Leganes debut on Monday when they travel to the all-seater, 53,289-capacity San Mamés Stadium in Bilbao against their host, Athletic Bilbao.
