Kenneth Omeruo will wait a bit longer before making his season’s debut with new club Kasimpasa.
The Nigeria defender was left on the bench on Monday as the club defeated newly promoted Malatyaspor 3-2 at the Recep Tayyip Erdogan stadium on Monday for the final Super Lig clash of the week.
Omeruo joined Kasimpasa for his second loan stint from Chelsea just before the end of the Super Lig transfer window.
His Nigerian compatriot Samuel Emem Eduok played from the start up till the 67th minute when he was substituted while Nigerian midfielder, Azubuike Godson Okechukwu played for the entire duration in the colours of the visitors.
Omeruo is fit to play however; the manager has decided to give the defender time to settle in before giving him a starting role.
The 23-year-old is no stranger to Kasimpasa and played last season on loan at Alanyaspor.
In fact Omeruo has played his last three seasons on temporary moves in the Super Lig.
Despite leaving Chelsea on loan, Omeruo still sees his long-term future at the London-based club.
Omeruo joined Chelsea from Standard back in 2012 but is yet to make a single appearance for the Blues senior side.
The international defender made 26 Super League appearances for Alanyaspor last season, helping keep the Mediterranean based side in the top-flight.
