Standard Liege youngster Kenneth Omeruo is set to join Chelsea.

Omeruo, an 18-year-old centre-back, joined Liege last summer and played for the Nigeria Under-20 national team at the U20 World Cup in Colombia.

Chelsea plan to sign the youngster before sending him on-loan to ADO Den Haag.

Den Haag coach Maurice Steijn told Omroep West: "I hope he can join our squad quickly if all the paperwork is completed."
