Omeruo declares Leganes pal Braithwaite on way to Barcelona

Leganes defender Kenneth Omeruo expects teammate Martin Braithwaite to join Barcelona.

A deal for the Denmark striker is expected to be finalised on Thursday.

Omeruo shared a goodbye message on social media that essentially confirmed the striker's exit.

"Congratulations brother, will miss you," he wrote, while sharing a photoshopped graphic from 433 of the Danish player in a Barcelona shirt.

Barcelona are believed to have told Leganes that they will pay the player's release clause of 18 million euros.
