Kenneth Omeruo (right) in Chelsea training

Nigeria defender Kenneth Omeruo looks set to be shipped out on another loan deal or be sold outright as Premier League champions Chelsea have not picked him on the squad for a training tour of Asia.

Chelsea will fly out of London tomorrow for China and Singapore, but without Omeruo.

The Eagles star captained a mainly U23 team against Crawley Town, playing 75 minutes yesterday, even though he has been training with the main squad since the pre-season begun.

His performance in a 1-1 draw with the fourth-tier team was described as “comfortable”.

However, SCORENigeria specially gathered the Nigeria central defender still does not have a future at Stamford Bridge.

Interests for him have so far been from Turkey, where he has played for the past two seasons on loan.

The clubs mainly want him on loan again but it is also possible one or two of them will be willing to buy him on a permanent basis.

In the coming weeks, the player’s destination will be a lot clearer.

He has two years left on his contract with ‘The Blues’.
