Uche Nwofor admits choosing VVV Venlo over Chelsea

Nigerian youngster Uche Nwofor admits he turned down Chelsea to sign with VVV Venlo.

Nwofor says he chose Venlo as he felt he had a better chance of establishing himself after moving from his homeland.

He told Voetbal International. "Chelsea wanted to talk to me, Benfica was very concrete and I could have gone to Ajax according to a contact. But now I want to first develop at VVV, this is a good stepping stone.

"If I do well, then the big clubs will return."
