Fulham new boy Ola Aina happy to be back in London

Fulham have signed Torino full-back Ola Aina on a season-long loan. 

The Premier League newcomers have an option to buy the 23-year old at the end of the season.

The Craven Cottage welcome mat has been well trodden ahead of Saturday's season-opening game at home to Arsenal.

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola has also joined on loan this week, while they've shelled out £3million (€3.25m) on Lyon's Dutch defender Kenny Tete.

Harrison Reed (£6million) and Mario Lemina (loan) have both arrived from Southampton. But their biggest outlay was reserved for Anthony Knockaert, who took £15million (€16.2m) to pry away from Brighton.

Aina's career started at Chelsea where he won a pair of FA Youth Cups. Loan moves to Hull City and Torino followed, with the latter being made permanent in June of 2019.

Born and raised in London but a Nigerian international, he played 69 games during his time with Il Toro, scoring once.

"I feel very excited and privileged to be able to play for a club like this," he told FFCtv

“It feels amazing to be back closer to my family, back in the capital where I was born and raised.

“There’s a great bunch of lads here. I’m really good friends with Big Hec and Josh Onomah.

“I feel very comfortable on either foot, I can fill in wherever needs be. I’d say I’m pretty quick and I like to attack, but I also like to help the team and do the dirty work as much as I can."
