Kenneth Omeruo

The Nigerian teenager has become a integral
part of Eredivisie outfit ADO Den Haag since moving on loan in January
and his recent form may see him called up to his national side. Could he
make the grade at the Bridge?


In recent years Chelsea have used the Eredivisie with great effect
regarding loan deals for their young talent with Alex, Slobodan
Rajkovic, Gael Kakuta, Patrick van Aanholt and Matej Delac just a few
examples of players to go to Holland to gain first team experience with
varying levels of success.


At the moment however there is a new kid on the block who is
causing a stir in the Dutch top division in the form of Nigerian
youngster Kenneth Omeruo. At just 18-years-old he cemented a place in
the ADO Den Haag side last season during a late loan spell that has been
continued into this season.


He is known in Holland for his strong physical presence that is
visible in his already firmly established 6ft 2in frame and stocky
chest. Also lightning fast he can operate at both right full back and at
the heart of defense.


Not to mention he has also proved himself a dangerous goal threat
with his aerial ability a massive bonus and his recent assured
performances against Heerenveen in particular has seen him earmarked for
a full international call-up.


He was signed for an undisclosed fee from Standard Liege in
January before being immediately shipped out to ADO and now his career
seems to be on an upward trend with a potential place in the Chelsea
first team on the horizon.

Here is a kid that makes great sense to keep him at ADO for another year or so.

So is this one of those loan moves that you find 'fucking baffling'? :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

Since I have no desire to pound him any longer, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience that I had caused here.

The other day I saw Kenneth play, he sure looks pretty promising. Hopefully, soon he may get his chance to prove himself at Stamford Bridge.

Does anyone know if he would qualify for a work permit in England?

Now he is playing established himself for Nigeria he'll definitely get a work permit, even if not, they could appeal on an 'exceptional young talent' basis.

Should get a work permit no problem, I think what prevented us from getting one for Rajkovic was his poor character history e.g spitting at a ref

Never understood the issue of work permits in the UK. I mean if we want to hire him and he wants to work for us, where is the problem?!

Anyway, on Omerou, I think he'll be with us in preseason in the summer and then the manager (whoever he turns out to be) will decide if should loan him out or not.

it's not just football it's all jobs.

To bring a foreign national in, you have to prove there is nobody else locally with the skill-sets and they have to be an expert. For a work permit in football they generally have to be playing for their National Team to achieve this status...

Omeruo - "I must first see what the plans of Chelsea are," said Omeruo. "But if I'm not playing in England I would like to remain with ADO.

"For me, it's either ADO or Chelsea."

Chelsea have told Nigerian youngster Kenneth Omeruo that he'll return from loan to be in the first team squad next season (Mirror)

Now i think kalas deserves to be recalled before omeruo.Kalas has been brilliant for vitesse for almost 2 years now and like omeruo he also can play both rb/cb.

@Sportive23_: Nigeria International Kenneth Omeruo, 19 was a 2005 graduate of G.S.S Gwarinpa, Abuja. That means he finished High School at the age of 12

Suggests he's either a genius..or lying about his age. Or whoever is tweeting is lying.

I taught in Africa ,,,ages are not to be relied on ,The reasons are sometimes complex but I would never completely accept a given age.

Again the term High School is open to different interpretations , The majority only have Primary Education not Secondary.

It would be normal to finish schooling at 12 or 13

People suggested this about him. Not the only place I heard this from. This is a common problem in countries such as Nigeria and Ghana. Hope this is not the case with Omeruo. IMO has a young face and hopefully is the real age. People use to say the same thing about Moses as he was a big beast when he was around 16 years old. It goes on though sadly.
