Mourinho approves Omeruo's Chelsea signing

By The Rainbow

Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has moved closer to joining Chelsea following a seal of approval by returning boss Jose Mourinho.

Reports say the defender is now 95% certain of finally joining Chelsea in the coming season as Mourinho wants to work with Kenneth after watching him at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Omeruo's inclusion in the Super Eagles final squad for this month's FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil has enhanced his chances of joining the London club.

The young Eagles defender, who has represented Nigeria at U17 and U20 levels, played a total of 26 matches and scored two goals in his time at Ado Den Haag.
