Kenneth Omeruo close to Wolves switch

by on July 17, 2017

Reports from England indicate that Chelsea and Nigerian defender, Kenneth Omeruo, will undergo a medical with English Championship side, Wolverhampton Wanderers, today.

A bid of £3m with add-ons was lodged by Wolves for his service and Chelsea accepted the fee for his transfer as he has no spot in Antonio Conte’s squad for next season campaign.

The Super Eagles defender has not however hidden his desire to play active football with any club that heeds his services, rather than remain a non playing star in Chelsea.

Omeruo will leave Chelsea without a first team appearance to his name, as the Nigeria international has only made two appearances for the team in unofficial games both for the U23s of the Premier League champions.

He turned down offers from team outside England, particularly from Greek and Turkish team, same country where he has spent the last two seasons on loan to Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor.

His willingness to remain in England helped Wolves snatch the 23 year old who has won the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria, and also played at the 2014 World Cup.
