Chelsea have loaned out another senior player.
This time it’s Kenneth Omeruo, last seen playing really rather well for Nigeria at the World Cup.
He’s had a proper veteran loan army career since joining the club, playing for five different teams now, over 6 and a half seasons. He’s spent a few years in Turkey, and was even one of the early Vitesse crew.
The centre back will join Leganes in La Liga on a loan deal, with previous reports in Spanish paper AS claiming that there’s a €5m purchase clause in there too.
That doesn’t sound like much, but it would match the little Madrid-based club’s joint most expensive transfer ever.

They’re a real fairy tale, about to go into their third season in La Liga after an astonishing rise through the divisions.
They showed a real grit defensively last season, and if Omeruo can get settled he could be a great asset for them.
€5m could turn out to be a real bargain.
