Connect Nigeria_Kenneth-Omeruo-1 Kenneth Omeruo started the year with a loan spell at Middlesbrough and was set to make a big move to a Premier League club side with great resistance from his parent club. Newly promoted English Premier League side, Queens Park Rangers are interested in taking on Nigeria World Cup defender on loan from Chelsea for the new season. Top sources have informed that another EPL outfit, Hull City have already indicated interest in taking the highly-promising central defender on loan after English Championship club Middlesbrough made it very clear that they would be more than happy to have Omeruo back for the forthcoming season. He spent half of last season at Middlesbrough on loan. Omeruo has signed a new three-year deal with Chelsea who have now said they wish for him to take his chance in the first team after a solid showing at the World Cup in Brazil. But this has not stopped several other clubs from expressing interest in having the player on loan for the third straight season. “QPR want to have Omeruo on loan for the new season even though Chelsea have made it clear they will give the player a chance to fight for a place in the first team after what he showed in Brazil,” a top source told” “The player is back in Nigeria on holidays now but he is expected back in London by July 28 in time for him to rejoin Chelsea for pre-season.” “Chelsea is billed to train in Papendal, Holland, for pre-season and it is only after this that a clearer picture will come up concerning his most immediate future.” Kenneth Omeruo showed composure in the 2014 World Cup, marking out some renowned strikers in high tempered situations whilst making a mark that has indefinitely left a memorable impression.
