Nigeria International defender, Ola Aina has signed for English Club Fulham on loan from Torino with the option to buy for €12.5m.

Fulham was promoted back to the English Premier League last month following a playoff victory over Brentford.

It is a return to his home town, as Aina was born in London and came up through the Chelsea youth academy.

Aina moved to Torino in 2018, initially on loan and then on a permanent basis for just under €10m. He notched up 62 Serie A appearances for the Italian outfit, contributing one goal and five assists.

On the international stage, Aina represented England at the youth level before switching his allegiance to Nigeria three years ago. He has since made 14 appearances for the Super Eagles.


There are very few things in life that make me happy, but talking and writing Sports has to be at the top. I honed my broadcasting skills at the University of Lagos Radio Station and have free-lanced for platforms like Top Radio and Superscreen TV amongst others.
