Super Eagles’ defender, Ola Aina was a glarring absentee as his Premiership side, Fulham were relegated following a 2-0 loss at home to Burnley on Monday (May 10).
He is not the only Nigerian linked with the club. Others with Nigerian connection, though British citizens are: Josh Maja, Joshua Onoma, Tosin Adarabioyo and Ademola Lookman.
Fullham had zero option as they had to win to maintain their slim survival hopes but first-half goals from Burnley’s Ashley Westwood and Chris Wood condemned them to the drop, with the visitors securing their top-flight status in the process.
Fulham were the third and last club to be relegated from the Premier League this season.
They will now join Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion in next term’s second-tier Championship.
