Omeruo excited over third spell at Kasimpasa


Nigerian defender Kenneth Omeruo said he is excited to be back at Kasimpasa of Turkey after leaving CD Leganes of Spain at the end of the 2022/23 season.

Turkish Super Lig club, Kasimpasa on Thursday announced the signing of Omeruo who turned down a lucrative offer from one of the free-spending Saudi Pro League club-sides.

“Our new transfer, Kenneth Omeruo signed a contract that binds him to Kasimpasa at the signing ceremony that took place after having his medical,” the Turkish club said.

Omeruo himself took to social media where he wrote that he is happy to make a return to Kasimpasa: “New chapter. God’s Work. Excited to be back at Kasimpasa SK,” he said.

The 29-year-old also said an emotional goodbye to the fans of former club, Leganés where he played for five seasons, having joined from Chelsea back in the summer of 2018.
