Nigeria international Kenneth Omeruo has expressed his delight at playing in the Spanish La Liga for Leganes.

The 25-year-old moved on-loan from Chelsea for the umpteenth time ahead of the 2018-19 season, and following moves to England's second tier, the Netherlands and Turkey, he now finds himself in Spain's top-flight.

Omeruo, though, is delighted with the move having finally made his debut earlier this month following an initial work permit issue.

"It was a frustrating start due to my work permit issue, but after playing in two big La Liga games I must say things are finally looking up," Omeruo told BBC Sport in an exclusive interview.

"I've been playing away from England in Turkey for a while and every time I always craved for a visible league where people can watch me.

"Luckily, after the World Cup where I had two good games, I got more options and I chose La Liga where everyone can watch me, and so far it's been a perfect decision for me."
