Super Eagles defender, Ola Aina has completed his medical at newly promoted premier league side Fulham ahead of his loan switch from Serie A club Torino.

The former Chelsea who turns 24 next month has an option to sign a €15m deal if he impresses on loan at the end of the 2020/2021 season.

According to reports, Fulham will pay €2.5m for the loan deal, with an option to buy for a further €12.5m while Torino negotiated a 10 per cent cut of any future transfer fee.

The London side is still struggling to adequately replace Ryan Fredericks who moved to West Ham in the summer of 2019 and there are fears that current right back Cyrus Christie does not have what it takes to perform in the premier league, hence the need for Ola Aina.

Aina scored just one goal but created five assists in 62 Serie A appearances for Torino.
