More money or no deal, Omeruo tells Chelsea

Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has told Chelsea to improve on his contract, otherwise he will take a walk in the summer.

Omeruo finished a success loan spell with Championship side Middlesbrough, with boss Aitor Karanka already confirming his interest in bringing him back next season. The 21-year-old  has just 12 months on his current deal with the Blues and must first resolve his future at Stamford Bridge before looking toward the new 2014/15 campaign.

And his representative, Chika Akujobi, has been quoted as saying he wants a better deal offered from Chelsea before he leaves for the World Cup in Brazil with Nigeria.

“We want them to double the offer, but they said they have a new policy for young players who have yet to break into their first-team and this ensures they do not go overboard with their offers,” he said.
“But Kenneth has already proved himself in the English Championship which is even more forceful and physical than the English Premier League, which is more about tactics.

“Chelsea have to come up and they have to do so soon, before the club go on summer holidays.”
Omeruo made 14 appearance for Boro after becoming Aitor Karanka’s first transfer-window capture in January.
