FROM TORINO TO LONDON; FULHAM AGREE OLA AINA’S LOAN DEAL

English Premier League side, Fulham, have agreed a deal to take Super Eagles defender, Ola Aina, on loan from Torino with option to buy for €12.5m.

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

He moved to Torino in 2018, initially on loan and then on a permanent basis for fee estimated around €10m.

The Nigeria international is now reportedly on his way to Fulham on loan for €2.5m with an option to buy for €12.5m.

Torino will also retain a 10 per cent cut of any future transfer. There had been some suggestions it would be an obligation to buy.

Aina amassed 62 Serie A appearances, contributing one goal and five assists.
