Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo says he hopes to secure a permanent move to Spanish side, Leganes in the coming days after enjoying a successful loan stint with the club last season, according to reports.
Leganes have been locked in discussion with Chelsea for the defender after the expiration of his loan deal last season.
Chelsea reportedly turned down a bid of €4m for the Nigeria international early in the summer and valued him around €6million.
Spanish news outlet, Marca reported on Tuesday that Léganes have increased their bid to €4.5million and is still no official response from Chelsea on their latest bid.
“Leganes is a team that I want to be a part of because their coach and the club trust me, and they want to give me many opportunities. I am happy that they are making efforts, and have increased their offer,” Omeruo told Marca.
Omeruo who is yet to play an official game for Chelsea, made 28 league appearances for Leganes last season.
He also had loan stints with English Championship side Middlesbrough, as well as Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor in the Turkish League.
