Chelsea’s Omeruo moves to Spain on loan

Kenneth Omeruo has joined Spanish club Leganes on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

The Nigeria defender, 24, has never made a first-team appearance for the Blues and has spent the past three seasons on loan in Turkey.

The move to Leganes includes the option of a permanent deal at the end of the season.

Although the transfer window in England is closed, it remains open elsewhere in Europe, meaning Premier League sides can still sell or loan players to clubs on the Continent.

Michy Batshuayi, Kurt Zouma, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ola Aina have also recently been loaned out by Chelsea.
