Omeruo, 22, made 25 appearances for Istanbul club Kasimpasa as they finished seventh last season, but they could not afford the option to make the player’s transfer a permanent one.
AfricanFootball.com learnt that Omeruo cost Chelsea about 600,000 Euros, when he signed for them in 2011 from Sunshine Stars.
However, he has not made his debut for the London club, who have instead skipped him out on loan to several other clubs including Dutch club ADO Den Haag and Kasimpasa.
He will now feature for another Turkish club, Besiktas, also on loan in the coming season.
