Super Eagles star, Kenneth Omeruo who is on-loan at Spanish La Liga side Leganes from Chelsea has finally revealed what he wants from the club after not making any competitive appearances in the Blues jersey since joining them since 2012.
Omeruo claims it is time for him to attain some form of stability in his football career after going on loan to different clubs for the past seven seasons. The Nigerian international really want to move on as he is currently enjoying a good spell at Leganes and the La Liga side are also interested in making the deal permanent.
The 25-year-old moved to the English Premier League giants in January 2012, but he is yet to play a single competitive game for the Blues, having spent time on loan with Dutch side ADO Den Haag, English Championship club Middlesbrough, Turkish Super Lig’s Alanyaspor and Kasimpasa. Back in August 2018, the Nations cup winner joined the Cucumber Growers for his seventh loan move from Chelsea, with an option of making the deal permanent.
Omeruo has been in top form and has delivered a reputable performances under the tutelage of Mauricio Pellegrino and has helped the team to keep ten clean sheets in his 24 appearances. And the defender has expressed his desire to remain with Estadio Municipal de Butarque outfit as he aims to stabilize his career.
“The football here suits my style and the club provides a stable platform for me,” Omeruo told BBC Sport. “The opportunity to play against the best players in the world is massive for my career. There is an option for Leganes to sign me on a permanent basis and hopefully that will happen.
“The Chelsea management have never stopped me from making important career decisions and they’ve been very supportive. “It will be a decision between both clubs, but personally I hope I’ll be a Leganes player for next season and beyond.”
“I deserve stability in my career as a footballer. Leganes and Spanish football provides me with the continuity and right environment for career growth. “After enduring instability with different loan moves, it’s time to finally settle down with my young family. Leganes fans and club officials have been awesome to my family which has helped me mentally and physically.
“It has also helped me with the national team and to connect with fans back home because La Liga is on television in Nigeria. I’d love to stay at this football club and hopefully that will happen.”
Omeruo will be expected to be in action in Spanish La Liga Santander when his side Leganes square up with the rejuvenated Getafe on Saturday after the international break.
