Turkish champions Besiktas according to reports coming out of Turkey, monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com are in London for talks with Chelsea over a loan deal for Nigeria international Kenneth Omeruo.

Besiktas have been locked in talks with Chelsea for more than a month over the transfer of the 22 year old, who spent last season on loan to fellow Turkish side Kasimpasa.

Turkish-Football reports that sources close to the club confirmed that Besiktas President arrived London on Tuesday to hold talks on a proposed loan deal with the option to buy permanently next summer.

We gathered a loan fee of €700,000 is presently been discussed between both parties with the Black Eagles also keen on inserting a release clause option of €4m.

At the moment, Chelsea are not willing to sanction the buy option and want the defender who is without a single appearance for the club since joining them in 2013, to sign an extension as his current deal is set to run out in 24 months time.

Still highly rated by the Technical staff of the Blues, who are still convinced he has a future at Stamford Bridge or better still worth more than the amount been offered by the Turkish side.
