ADO, Chelsea to meet over Omeruo



Barclays English Premier League side, Chelsea are set to meet with Dutch club, ADO Den Haag, to discuss the future of Nigeria defender, Kenneth Omeruo.

According to Voetbal International, representatives of the European champions and that of the Dutch Eredivisie outfit will meet next month to iron out the immediate future of the 19-year-old centre-back.

Reports are already suggesting that the former Sunshine Stars' man is being lined up to join up with his parent club, Chelsea after his loan spell ends this season at ADO Den Haag.

But the English giants, it has been learned, want to know the progress of the Nigerian at ADO following his impressive performance in South Africa leading to his nation's Africa Cup of Nations win.

With Omeruo in line to be named in Chelsea's first-team squad next season, another Nigerian at the London club, Victor Moses, believes the teenager can fit into the Blues.

"I couldn't believe it when he said he hadn't played in the African Nations before. He was really strong and is a good defender. He is a great lad and a player for the future (for Chelsea)," Moses told chelseafc.com.

Omeruo joined Chelsea at the start of this season from Belgian club, Standard Liege before he was immediately sent on loan to ADO Den Haag.
