Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo who’s on loan to Alanyaspor has revealed he wants to leave the club on a permanent deal this summer.

Omeruo signed a one-year extension on his contract last year, keeping him at the Premier League club until 2019.

The 23-year-old who won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013, is currently on his fourth loan spell away from Stamford Bridge at Turkish outfit Alanyaspor, and the Nigerian international seems to have had enough of his loan spells.

“It might happen that I get to play for Chelsea but it is no longer my immediate priority,” Omeruo told BBC Sport.

“You have no idea how frustrating it is to always go out on loan.

“Last season I had an opportunity to go to one of Turkey’s biggest clubs [Besiktas] but the deal collapsed two days to the end of the transfer window.

“This season I was lucky I could find a place where I could still play because they want me to come to Alanyaspor.

“My priority is to play at the top, to find a place where I get to play regularly.

“Next season will be interesting because I’m looking to be in one of the top leagues, so we’ll see what happens.”
