Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has noted that he would rather continue with his sojourn on loan than sit on the bench at Premier League champions Chelsea in the new season.
Omeruo, 23, has completed another season-long loan spell at Turkish club Alanyaspor and will be part of Chelsea pre-season training next month.
The central defender, who signed for Chelsea in 2012, has not played for ‘The Blues’ as he has always been shipped out on loan at ADO Den Haag of Holland (2012-2013), Middlesbrough of England (2014-2015), Kasimpasa of Turkey (2015-2016) and Alanyaspor also of Turkey in 2016-2017.
“For now, I’m a Chelsea player”, Omeruo told journalist in Lagos.
“I’ve only been out on loan. Now that my loan period at Alanyaspor is over, I will be returning to Chelsea for our pre season.
“No decision has been made if I’m still going out on loan or staying at Chelsea. The important thing for me is that I’m still playing regularly. If I will have to stay at Chelsea and not be playing games, then I won’t stay, that is it for now”.
Omeruo expressed his joy with the success of Chelsea, he was happy with their success at the EPL, despite the fact he has spent five seasons on the payroll of the English Premier League side without playing a part in their huge successes.
