Ola Aina: Fulham set to sign ex-Chelsea youngster on loan

23-year-old, who has won 17 international caps for Nigeria, will return to Premier League

Fulham are close to completing a deal to sign Torino's Nigeria international defender Ola Aina.

The ex-Chelsea youngster is set to join the Cottagers on an initial season-long loan, with the deal expected to be completed by the middle of the week.

Fulham will have the option to make Aina's loan a permanent transfer for a figure in the region of £11m.

Former England youth international Aina is a graduate of Chelsea's academy and spent over a decade at the club.

He spent the 2017-18 campaign away on loan at Hull before making a season-long loan move to Torino the following year.

The Serie A side took up the option to make Aina's move from Chelsea permanent in June 2019. The 23-year-old made 37 appearances for Torino last season.

Aina is leaving Torino 99%.

In fact, today he was not included in the 31-man Torino list for a mini pre-season camp. It seems the deal with Fulham is almost complete. The new Torino coach, I think, did not want him in the squad but I do not know the real reason behind the sudden change of Aina’s fortune at Torino. It is quite curious.

Thanks, any updates on Kingsley Michael? Will he stay in Bologna?
I am happy

Dammy,

In bologna’s last friendly (vs feralpisalo , 2-0 for bologna), kingsley was introduced in the half-time and played all the 2nd half. This was a pre-season friendly with 8 or so changes at half time, so take that at face value,

Last I heard he has some interest from Serie B teams. Bologna wish to loan him out again, but he might yet remain as it depends on whether they acquire new players. This transfer market is weird! I still think that another year in Serie B might do him well. He needs to step up a gear to be among the big boys.

Thanks, but he's been their best player in the 2 previous pre seasons. When are they going to give him a chance?

Jesus didn't die so we could have religion. He died so we could have a deep, intimate, personal relationship with God.

Promising move but he isn't a shoe-in to start at LB at Fulham. Their current LB, Joe Bryan, is one of their most important players after Mitrovic. He also takes their set-pieces. I assumed that Aina would be an option at RB where Fulham have rotated betwen Cyrus Christie and Dennis Odoi but it looks like they are about to sign Kenny Tete from Lyon

True, but he hasn’t set the world alight in Serie B either.

Transfer was probably not even cleared by then. In fact he wasn’t even on the bench.
