The younger brother of Kenneth Omeruo, Lucky has joined his brother at Spanish La Liga side CD Leganes.

CD Leganes have not disclosed the financial terms plus length of contract signed by the younger Omeruo, and informed that the player has been training under the guidance of José María Rico, who manages the B team.

Lucky Omeruo is known for his versatility and is comfortable playing in offensive and defensive positions.

The 23-year-old was offered a contract by CD Leganes following a successful trial.

Lucky Omeruo was training with CD Leganes before he was instructed by the leadership of the club to return to Nigeria to process his work permit and the deal was confirmed upon his return to Spain.

He lists Tarxien Rainbows, Marsa FC and FK Palanga as his former employers.

Nigeria forward, Lucky Omeruo, has joined his elder brother Kenneth Omeruo at LaLiga outfit CD Leganes on a one-year contract with an option of another year.

Lucky, 24, however, will not immediately have the opportunity of playing along with his brother as he will start with the second team.

Lucky Omeruo will look to impress with the B team of Leganes for a chance of playing with the main team.

The talented forward once had stints with Maltese clubs Birkirkara F.C.and Pembroke Athleta FC.

Lucky won the Maltese league title with Pembroke Athleta in 2015.

The young striker was once part of Nigeria’s U-20 and the U-23 teams but failed to make much impact.

His brother, Kenneth is loan at Leganes from English Premier League side Chelsea.
