According African Football, Turkish club Kasimpasa won't be able to sign Chelsea defender and loanee Kenneth Omeruo at the end of the season due to lack of funds. The 22-year-old Nigerian international has made 18 starts for Kasimpasa in the Turkish Süper Lig this season, with the club currently sitting 8th in the league table.

Even though Omeruo's loan arrangement contains an option to purchase, Kasimpasa won't be exercising that clause at the end of the campaign.

"Kasimpasa don't have the money to buy Omeruo out-rightly at the end of the season. They rather want another loan for the player and it may now mean the player will have to return to Chelsea"

Omeruo's contract with Chelsea runs out in 2018, and it's highly unlikely that the Blues will give him a chance in the first-team if he returns to London. But given his solid showings in Turkey, a transfer to an European club should be easy enough to finalize during the next transfer window.
