33285 - Chelsea poised to sign Nigerian defender

The Blues are set to tie up the signing of Nigeria Under-20 international Omeruo, 18, and would then loan him to Dutch club ADO Den Haag.

"I hope all the paperwork is in place soon so he can join our squad," ADO Den Haag coach Maurice Steijn told Omroep West.

Chelsea are apparently intending to loan the centre-back to Den Haag until the end of the 2012-13 season.
