Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo, who is yet to kick a ball for the Blues has revealed that he’s willing to leave the club on a permanent deal, after spending the last season on loan in Alanyanspor, Turkey.

“It might happen that I get to play for Chelsea but it is no longer my immediate priority,” Omeruo said just last week.

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

It seems that the wishes of the Nigerian international will be fulfilled this summer as he’s set to be sold in the coming transfer market.

Chelsea signed Omeruo from Belgian side Standard Liege in 2012, and the 23-year-old has spent four seasons out on loan, most recently with Turkish top-flight side Alanyaspor.

And according to a source close to the defender, a number of Turkish clubs are showing an interest in signing Omeruo on a permanent basis, and the Blues have reportedly put a £7million price-tag on the Nigeria international

Speaking to website Score Nigeria, the source said: “There are some clubs in Turkey who are interested in signing Kenneth at the end of the season.

“They will include Kasimpasa, who he played for last season, and also his current club Alanyaspor.

“But the snag will be if they could come up with the £7million Chelsea want for the player.”

Omeruo’s current deal with Chelsea runs until June 2019.
