Done Deal : Fulham Announce Signing Of Chelsea Product Ola Aina
Through their official website, English Premier League new boys Fulham have announced the signing of former Chelsea defender Ola Aina.

The Nigeria international will be spending the whole of the 2020-2021 season on loan at the Cottagers, including the option to make the transfer permanent.

London-born Aina joined Torino on an initial loan deal in the summer of 2018, before he was acquired on a permanent basis the following season.

In his first words as a Fulham player, Aina stated : "I feel very excited and privileged to be able to play for a Club like this.

"It feels amazing to be back closer to my family, back in the capital where I was born and raised.

"There’s a great bunch of lads here. I’m really good friends with Big Hec and Josh Onomah.

"I feel very comfortable on either foot, I can fill in wherever needs be. I’d say I’m pretty quick and I like to attack, but I also like to help the team and do the dirty work as much as I can."

Aina, who was a key member of the Super Eagles squad that won bronze at last year's Africa Cup of Nations, has been assigned the number 34 jersey by Fulham for the 2020-2021 season.
