Leganes fans mob Kenneth Omeruo

| |

Super eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has been officially introduced to the Leganes fans after he put pen to paper for 5-year deal.

It was a gathering of fans in their numbers chanting the name of the Super Eagles player Omeruo in a rhythmic manner.

The rock solid defender and Abuja based defender wasted no time in showering encomiums on the coach and the owner of the club at the official unveiling.

“I want to make history with the club and I am pleased to know I will be here for five years.” He said.

Omeruo signed for Chelsea in 2012 from Standard Liege, but was never able to make the breakthrough into the first team at Stamford Bridge.

The Nigeria international took in several loan stints during his time at Chelsea, including with ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands and Middlesbrough in England, as well as Kasımpasa and Alanyaspor in Turkey.

But Omeruo found a home at Leganes in his final loan spell with the Blues, and parlayed his strong performances last term into a permanent move.

Earlier this summer, Omeruo spoke of his desire to leave Chelsea to further his career.

“I think now’s the time for me to leave, to find a place, to be my own man,” he said. “I’m married with a baby now, so I need stability.

“Chelsea have done amazingly for me, and for my family as well, but it’s time for me to reach my potential and get where I think I deserve to be.”
