Omeruo returns to Middlesbrough

Kenneth Omeruo has returned to Middlesbrough on loan until the end of the season.

The defender spent the second half of the 2013/14 campaign on loan at the Riverside Stadium, helping the Teessiders to six clean sheets in his 14 appearances there.

Comfortable at right-back or centre-back, the Nigerian was an ever-present for their World Cup campaign and was also an integral member of his country’s victorious African Cup of Nations team last year.

We wish Kenneth well at Middlesbrough and you can keep updated with his progress here on the official Chelsea website.
