Another ray of hope has emerged for Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo for relevance at Chelsea of England, following the club’s decision to keep his name on their list of registered players.
Omeruo has spoken of his desire to finally tie down a spot in The Blues’ main squad and,. though he had been banking on excelling at the World Cup to finally get a look in at Stamford Bridge, the club have gone ahead to retain his name in their list for next season.
Alongside Omerruo, The Blues also confirmed that his fellow-Nigeria internationals Victor Moses and Ola Aina will remain on the club’s books next season.
Other players of Nigerian descent retained are England youth internationals Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Ike Ugbo and Tariq Uwakwe.
Only Moses played for the first team last season, with Omeruo, Aina, Ugbo, Abraham and Aina loaned out to Kasimpasa, Hull City, MK Dons, Swansea City and Hull City respectively.
Moses enjoyed another successive season with Chelsea on a personal level, featuring in 38 games and having a hand in eight goals, and helped the club win the Emirates FA Cup.
