Turkish club Kasimpasa are set to pay five million pounds to sign Nigeria defender Kenneth Omeruo by the summer when his Chelsea contract will have only a year to go.
Top sources revealed that Kasimpasa are satisfied with the Nigeria international defender, who is on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea.
Omeruo, 22, has made eight appearances for Istanbul club Kasimpasa, who are sixth on the table with 20 points from 13 matches, 10 points adrift of leaders Fenerbache.
“Kasimpasa are very satisfied with Kenneth and they are most likely to active the player’s release clause at Chelsea which is put at between four and five million pounds,” a close source informed.
“His contract will have only a year left by next June and it is expected Chelsea will let him go for a fee by then rather than lose him for nothing thereafter.”
But for injuries, the Chelsea loanee would have been an ever-present for his current club.
He only returned to action this past weekend in a 2-2 draw with Galatasaray after a relapse of a hamstring injury.
