On-loan Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo has got off to a great start in Turkey establishing himself as a key member of the best performing defensive side in the league.

The 21-year-old defender has made 15 appearances this season and his side have conceded just 18 goals all season – only leaders Fenerbahce and second place Besiktas have let in as few goals.

Omeruo has been in impressive form on the pitch and has settled in well to life in Turkey. The Nigerian international keeps his followers updated regularly on social media and his recent Instagram posts revealed that he has named his dog after the Greek king of the gods Zeus.

They say a dog is a mans best friend and Omeruo seems to have bonded pretty closely with Zeus. The young defender often shares pictures alongside his dog whatever the weather.
