Besiktas are in talks with Chelsea over signing Nigerian international defender Kenneth Omeruo on loan according to the Milliyet.

The report claims that Besiktas are keen on bringing in Omeruo on loan next season and that Chelsea are considering letting the 22-year-old stay in Turkey for another season.

Besiktas will be expected to cover Omeruo’s contract fee which is expected to fetch €1.1 million per-season.

Omeruo was one of the most highly rated defenders in the Super Lig last season for Kasimpasa.

The youngster settled into life in Istanbul and would only have to move down to the Besiktas district if we were to make the move.

The 22-year-old has yet to play for Chelsea having spent a season at Middlesbrough and in the Netherlands prior to moving to Turkey.

Besiktas would be able to offer Omeruo the chance to play a key role in playing for the league title next season as well as Champions League football.
