Kenneth Omeruo agrees three-year Chelsea contract extension

Published Add your comment

Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo has agreed a three-year contract extension with the club, according to The London Evening Standard.

The 20-year-old, who was on loan at Championship outfit Middlesbrough last season, is set to star at this summer's World Cup for Nigeria.

And now it appears that his long term future will be at Stamford Bridge, after his agent, Chika Akujobi, revealed that the youngster is happy with the draft contract offer from the club. 

Akujobi told reporters: “We have all seen the draft of the improved contract and the boy is happy about it. It’s a good contract and we are all happy about how Chelsea have warmed up to him and made him feel very much at home."

“Everything is not all about money because Chelsea have really taken care of the player.”

Omeruo's agent has claimed the deal isn't about money, despite recently telling Chelsea to double their offer in order to tie down the player.

It remains to be seen as to whether Omeruo will be handed a first team opportunity at the club for the 2014/15 campaign. After the departure of Brazilian ace David Luiz to Ligue 1 moneybags Paris Saint-Germain, Omeruo may be given an opportunity under Jose Mourinho next season. 

Chelsea fans will certainly be hoping that some of their youngsters are handed a chance in the near future, with the club targeting long term success.
