Chelsea will not include Nigerian international Kenneth Omeruo in their preseason tour of Asia due to a problem with his visa. The Super Eagles defender has reportedly impressed in training for the Blues and even captained a Chelsea XI in a 1-1 draw with Crawley Town this past weekend.
The 23-year-old, who joined Chelsea in 2012, has yet to make a competitive appearance for the club. He has had loan spells at ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough, Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor in the last five years.
Meanwhile, Nigeria striker Ibrahim Shuaibu scored his third goal in five games as he helped his FK Haugesund side defeat Aalesund 2-0 in the Norwegian Eliteserien on Sunday. The former Giwa FC striker has established himself.
