Omeruo ready to leave Chelsea for first team football after 5 years on loan

Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has admitted that he might have to leave Chelsea to get first team football after five years out on loan from the London club.

The 23-year-old Nigeria international is currently on loan at Turkey’s Alanyaspor and is yet to play for Chelsea since joining in 2012, and has said that he’s not happy with the situation.

“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,” added the Nigeria defender.

“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,” he added.

“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.”
