Chelsea Nigeria international defender Ola Aina has agreed a season long loan move to Italian Serie A side Torino with the option of making the deal permanent next summer, Owngoalnigeria.com reports.
Aina shunned a host of English Championship teams in favour of a move out of England with Torino and fellow Serie A side Frosinone leading the chase for his signature.
He has however settled for a move to Torino and he is expected in Turin on Monday for medicals before his official unveiling same day according to reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com editorial team.
His agent Paolo Bursardo is presently working on the final details of the move, which could potentially bring his stay at Chelsea to an end after progressing through the ranks to the first team.
Last season he was ever present for Hull City in the English Championship and he narrowly missed out on a spot in the Nigerian team that exited the World Cup 2018 in Russia in the group stage.
