We didn't need much more confirmation that Kenneth Omeruo is Middlesbrough-bound after the player himself said so, but Boro manager Aitor Karanka's quotes to that effect are nice anyway, just because it's fun to see our prospects spoken about in such complimentary terms. Check them out:
The most important thing is he is happy to join us. He is the kind of player who is very important on the pitch and off the pitch. He’s always ready to train, always ready to have fun, always joking. He is a player everybody loves; his team-mates, the staff, the supporters, everybody in the club and the town love him.

A universally beloved centre back who's also a rock on the pitch? At 20? No wonder Middlesbrough wanted him back; no wonder Omeruo was happy to return. Although he'll outgrown the environment soon (arguably he already has done), it sounds like the perfect incubator of his talents for now. What an encouraging quartet of sentences that was.
