Kenneth Omeruo joins Kasimpasa on permanent deal

Super Eagles star set for third spell in Turkish club

Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has completed a permanent move to Turkish Super Lig outfit Kasimpasa from CD Leganes in Spain, ending his five-year association with the club.

Former Chelsea star Omeruo was among the top earners at Leganes, and the second-division side were keen to reduce their wage bill and as a result, put the player up for sale this summer. His former club, Kasimpasa, saw an opportunity and decided to grab it with both hands to sign the experienced centre-back.

Omeruo leaves Leganes as their most featured African player ever, having played 123 games for the Spanish side. He returns to familiar terrain, having previously played on loan at Kasimpasa in the 2015-16 and 2017-18 seasons.

The 29-year-old joins a plethora of Super Eagles stars who have completed transfers this summer, including William Troost-Ekong (PAOK), Leon Balogun (Rangers), Calvin Bassey (Fulham), Ola Aina (Nottingham Forest), Kelechi Nwakali (GD Chaves), Victor Boniface (Bayer Leverkusen) and Samuel Chukwueze (AC Milan).
