Omeruo passes Chelsea medical

…Gets jersey number

Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has passed his medical at English Premier League club Chelsea and has been handed jersey number 51.
His Holland-based adviser, Chika Conleth Akujobi , told “Kenneth has passed his medical test at Chelsea and his training shirt number is 51.
“It’s the reward of our hard work and belief in the player since he was coming through the Nigeria U17s.”

This is a massive break for the young central defender against a backdrop of doubts back in Nigeria that he does not figure in Jose Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge.
The 19-year-old Omeruo was not part of the Chelsea squad to a pre-season training tour of the United States and his arrival to London was delayed by the late issuance of an entry visa to the United Kingdom.

The former Sunshine Stars of Akure defender has already been granted a five-year work permit in Britain.
He was on a season and half loan deal from Chelsea to Dutch club ADO Den Haag.

Early this year, the former Nigeria U17 and U20 star made his full international debut and went on to break into the first team as Nigeria won a third Africa Cup of Nations crown in South Africa.
