Fulham close to deal to sign Aina

Fulham are close to completing a deal to bring former Chelsea defender Ola Aina back to west London from Torino.

The Whites have been in talks with Torino to sign the full-back on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move.

Aina, 23, signed for the Italian club from Chelsea on a permanent deal last year after impressing during a season on loan.

A product of Chelsea’s academy, London-born Nigeria international Aina made six first-team appearances for the Blues – four of them as a substitute. He also had a season on loan at Hull City.
