Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo has told his confidence has been boosted after an enjoyable time at Turkish club Kasimpasa, where he spent the past season on loan.

The Nigeria international played 26 times for the Turkish club and would have posted more appearances but for the injuries he suffered during the course of the season.

Omeruo spent the previous two seasons on loan at Middlesbrough – then playing in the English Championship – and he also admits that playing in the top league has been good for him and has given him more confidence.

“I’ve enjoyed my football and I am more confident, playing in the first league felt good,” he told

He is not expected to extend his stay at Kasimpasa and has been linked with some clubs in the EPL including Crystal Palace.

He will rejoin the deposed Premier League champions for pre-season, before a decision is made if he will stay at Stamford Bridge for the 2016/17 season or whether he will go out on loan again.
