Super Eagles Omeruo joins Turkish side Kasimpasa on loan
Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has joined Turkish Super Lig side Kasimpasa on a season-long loan deal from English champions Chelsea.
The 21-year-old, who joined Chelsea in January 2012, spent last season on loan at English Championship side Middlesbrough, making 22 appearances.
"The target is to get a lot of playing time and help Kasimpasa achieve their objectives," he said.
"I've come to Turkey to reciprocate the club's determination to bring me here. 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.
"Kasimpasa approached Chelsea in a professional manner and the chance to test myself in a top league is very challenging."
Omeruo underwent his medical at Kasimpasa on Tuesday before signing a deal, which includes an option for the Turkish club to buy him at the end of the loan.
Is this the move in the right direction for the Nigeria international defender?
