It is now confirmed that West London outfit Chelsea will part ways with Nigerian international Ola Aina as he has completed a permanent switch to Italian Serie A outfit Torino.

The 22-year-old is now ending his 11-year stay as a Blues player as he has not been able to break through into the first team.

The young Nigerian finally settled for the Italian outfit after enjoying a loan deal with the club. It was therefore decided that he remains with Torino permanently.

Reports claim that the fee agreed upon for the deal is expected to be worth around £8.7m which remains a gain for the Blues team rather than keeping the player.

Ola Aina has established himself as a full-back and has the ability to play both sides of the pitch which is one of the qualities the Italian side will benefit from him.

However, the Evening Standard reports that the decision to have Ola Aina sold by the Blues team was not an easy one because of the knowledge of his quality but he has been unable to break into the first team.

Chelsea will hope on having their transfer ban lifted so that they can be able to do some deals to strengthen in this summer transfer window.
