Chelsea to loan Kenneth Omeruo out to Turkish giants Besiktas for forthcoming season


Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo is set to leave sign a one year long loan deal with Turkish giants Besiktas this week with the aim of turning it into a permanent transfer at the end of the season.
 Omeruo, 24, signed for Chelsea in January 2012 from Belgian side Standard Liege and was immediately sent out on loan to Dutch side Ado Den Haag but returned to the UK at the start of the 2013/14 season. Following a season-long loan with Middlesbrough in the English Championship, Omeruo was sent out to Turkish club Kasimpasa at the beginning of the last campaign.

 With his season-long loan over, Omeruo had been planning to join the Chelsea team with a view to fighting for a starting shirt but Besiktas have come in with an offer for him. Last week, Chelsea turned down last-ditch offer from Spanish La Liga club Celta Vigo and have instead agreed to loan him to the Turkish side.
 Omeruo and his representatives are expected in London this week to finalise his personal terms with Besiktas after both clubs agreed the switch. Besiktas scouted the highly-rated central; defender after he posted five-stars displays against them last season while featuring for Kasimpasa.
 One source close to the player said: “Kenneth’s transfer to Besiktas is virtually completed with only the Turkish club to agree his personal terms and this will be sorted out this week when the player is there to do his medical. There was a late bid for him by Spanish club, Celta Vigo but Chelsea didn’t consider it.”
 Last season, when the two Turkish clubs met in the league, Kasimpasa won the first game 1-0 at home, while the reverse fixture ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw. Kasimpasa, who are based in Istanbul like Besiktas, however, could not afford the €5m Chelsea demanded to sell the player outright.
