Aina Joins Fulham On Loan From Torino

Nigeria defender Ola Aina has joined Fulham on a season-long loan from Serie A club Torino.

Fulham also holds an option to make the deal to sign the 23-year-old permanent.

“I feel very excited and privileged to be able to play for a Club like this,”Aina told FFCtv after finalising the move.

“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.”

Tony Khan added: “I’m pleased to announce the arrival of Ola Aina to Fulham on loan from Torino. Ola is an exciting young player who can further strengthen our squad this season in the Premier League.

“In our loan agreement, we’ve secured an option for a permanent transfer for Ola to potentially remain at Fulham if this season proves to be a good fit for us, which is a great situation for the Club given our belief in Ola’s talent and in his potential. Come on Fulham!”

    Yet another Super Eagles player to watch out for in the EPL this season. A very good move. I don’t see anyone keeping Aina on the bench. He’s a utility player.

  • Adding the Italian style of defence to his knowledge of the English game will make him unstoppable. A step in the right direction.
