Personal terms agreed: International defender confirms he has signed contract with Chelsea


Nigerian defender Kenneth Omeruo has confirmed on his official Instagram page that he has extended his contract with Chelsea.

The 22-year-old has extended his stay at Stamford Bridge until the end of July 2019.

He will join Turkey's Alanyaspor on loan as he continues to struggle to enjoy regular first-team football in London.

"The focus right now is to play regularly and establish myself here," Omeruo told BBC Sport.

"I know what to expect joining a team with big ambitions - it means the bar has been raised even higher.

"I don't want to enjoy the tag of being a Chelsea player always going out on loan without regular football," Omeruo added.

"My desire is to prove myself a worthy addition to Alanyaspor, make a significant contribution in all competitions and take it from there.

"I don't want to get ahead of myself but everybody wants to be settled at a place and play regularly - I am no different."
