Chelsea and Nigeria international defender Kenneth Omeruo put up a commanding display for his loan side Alanyaspor as they thrash Kayserispor 3-0 in a league game.

The 23 year old has been ever present for his loan side since his move, but has struggled to live up to his high ratings due to some inconsistent performances in previous games.

Omeruo back after missing Alanyaspor’s last game through an injury picked up while on international duty with Nigeria during the recently concluded World Cup 2018 qualifiers,

He was by far one of the best players for the Turkish side, a performance which will no doubt earn him glowing reports from members of Chelsea Technical staff, who were at the stadium to check on his progress.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on keeping up with the progress of the Nigerian, who signed a new deal before heading out on loan, in view of giving him a chance to impress in their next pre season tour.

Before joining Alanyaspor, the former Nigeria U-17 defender has endured four different loan spells since joining the Blues in 2013, twice with Middlesbrough after his first loan spell with ADO Den Haag of the Netherlands.

Last season, he was on loan to Turkish side Kasimpasa, and despite been heavily linked with a loan move to Champions Besiktas, he ended up at Alanyaspor where he has grown into one of the leaders of the team.
