It looks like Kenneth Omeruo will finally get his wish and complete his permanent transfer to Leganés, where he had been on loan already last season. (The Spanish transfer window is open through the end of the month.)
The La Liga minnows spent much of the summer trying to negotiate a fee with Chelsea for the 25-year-old center back, but according to yesterday’s Diario AS, those talks have finally borne fruit. The two teams have apparently agreed a €5m fee, with a 15 per cent sell-on clause. This clause was evidently key to Chelsea accepting a lower bid than what other teams were offering, such as Celta de Vigo, who came in with €6m.
Omeruo had already agreed personal terms with Leganés, and is set to sign a five-year deal until 2024. But if he’s moved on before then, Chelsea will be due 15 per cent of his transfer fee. Considering Omeruo’s considerable talents, we just might collect a few extra million in the near future, too.
