Chelsea loan Nigerian defender to Torino
Chelsea have reportedly sanctioned the loan exit of Ola Aina to Torino. The Nigerian spent the previous campaign on a season-long loan with Hull City and he has now been allowed to pursue another temporary challenge in Turin.
According to Chelsea's official website, the four-time Nigeria international has linked up with the Serie A outfit shortly after penning a fresh three year deal with the Blues.
It remains to be seen whether Torino have a buy-option but reports in Italy suggest that this may be the case with around £7m quoted for his permanent transfer next summer.
Aside from Aina, Tiemoue Bakayoko has left the Blues for a temporary move to AC Milan, who are said to have option to buy him for around £35m next summer.
Chelsea begun their league campaign with a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Huddersfield Town but they can expect a much stiffer challenge this weekend when they host cross-town rivals Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
