Leganes of Spain defender Kenneth Omeruo says he is not looking forward to a return to his parent club, Chelsea Goalball.com.ng understands. The player says he would love to get a permanent stay at his present base.
Though Omeruo is on loan at Leganes from Chelsea, the defender is happy with his strides so far in La Liga and believes he has a better future ahead of him in Spain.
Having failed to tie down a spot with the Blues’ main team since signing for the side in 2012, the former Sunshine Stars of Akure feels hard done by the former English Premier League champions, such that his mind is now focused only on a future at Leganes.
Omeruo has not played a single first team game for Chelsea, who have loaned him to ADO Den Haag of Holland, Middlesbrough of England as well as the Turkish Super Lig duo of Alanyaspor and Kasimpasa.
In contrast, since moving to Leganes in the summer, the former Standard Lige of Belgium defender has played in four games so far this season, which he says is a vast improvement for him.
Omeruo says he is learning a lot from Leganes’ boss Mauricio Pellegrino and wants to remain with the side after his loan period expires.
“I want to be in Leganés, in Spain. I want to play and improve here. I would like to continue with Leganés,” Omeruo said.
