Nations Cup success: Chelsea want Omeruo back in London

Kenneth OmueruoSuper Eagles defender, Kenneth Omueruo is set to rejoin Chelsea in the summer after his superlative outing at the 2013 African Nations Cup where he help the Eagles to win the trophy.

He was sent on loan to ADO Den Haag to develop his skills, but Chelsea on the look out for replacement for aging John Terry will open talks with the Dutch club next month to pave way for Omeruo’s return to Stamford Bridge. With Omeruo in line to be named in Chelsea’s first-team squad next season, another Nigerian at the London club, Victor Moses, believes the teenager can fit into the Blues. “I couldn’t believe it when he said he hadn’t played in the African Nations before. He was really strong and is a good defender. He is a great lad and a player for the future (for Chelsea),” Moses told chelseafc.com. Omeruo joined Chelsea at the start of this season from Belgian club, Standard Liege before he was immediately sent on loan to ADO Den Haag.
