Nigeria defender Kenneth Omeruo joins Leganes on loan from Chelsea, while Ola Aina signs for Torino on season-long loan
Super Eagles duo Keneth Omeruo and Ola Aina have gone out on loan to Leganes and Torino respectively.
The two Nigerian defenders renewed their Chelsea contract before they both went out on loan
Ola Aina who spent last season on loan at Championship side Hull city completed his move to the Serie A club yesterday.
While Kenneth Omeruo's loan deal was officially confirmed today by Chelsea and Spanish La Liga Leganes.
CD Leganés and @ChelseaFC reach an agreement for the loan of @omeruo22. His presentarion will be at ID Butarque next Friday (11:30 h. CEST) ➡️https://t.co/biiv5JmhVh pic.twitter.com/xQ7AsrKTR6— C.D. Leganés 🇺🇸🇬🇧 (@CDLeganes_en) August 15, 2018
This is a better move for both players as Omeruo spent the last three season on loan in the Turkish League with Kisimpasa (2015-2016, 2017-2018) and Alanyaspor (2016-2017).
The Turkish League is not as competitive as La Liga, the Super Eagles World cup defender will have a lot to learn in Spain as he will be facing Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale, Diego Costa, World Cup winner Greizmann, Luis Suarez and the likes on a weekly basis.
While Ola Aina will learn a lot at Serie A side, Torino, Italian Serie A is well known for producing great fullbacks and defenders.
