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.

“Chelsea coach [Antonio] Conte had considered him for the pre-season tour of China and Singapore, but he can't get the visas within a week, so he's not traveling with the team,” a Chelsea insider told Allnigeriasoccer.com.

“There's a possibility that he will be loaned out again by Chelsea, talks are in progress.”

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.
