Outgoing Chelsea of England defender, Kenneth Omeruo has declared that the Spanish duo of Real Valladolid and Leganes, or any other club seeking to sign him this summer must meet terms and conditions laid down by his parent club.
Speaking against the backdrop of the entry of Leganes and Valladolid into the race for his signature, Omeruo admitted he would love to line out for either team this season, but said Chelsea have the final verdict on where he will take his trade to next.
Before now, all talk had been on Omeruo returning to Turkey, where he last played on loan in a second stint back at Kasimpasa, after an earlier spell with Konyaspor, but the dark-skinned stopper admitted he is also considering offers from Valladolid and Leganes.
This comes in the wake of earlier bids from Besiktas and Goztepe, alongside two other clubs in Turkey, but Omeruo says they all must meet Chelsea’s financial terms before he can talk about which of the lot he will join in the coming days.
Omeruo will be keen to get a deal over the line as quickly as possible, with the new La Liga season poised to start this weekend.
After joining back in 2012, he has since endured loan spells in Holland, Turkey and England, but now looks destined for Spain.
At the age of 24, it could be his final loan move before securing a permanent move away from Chelsea, where he became a peripheral figure and never managed to feature for the club’s first-team squad.
