First loan for Aina

Ola Aina has today joined Hull City on loan for the 2017/18 season.

Aina, 20, will link up with the Championship side to further his first-team experience having been a member of our title-winning squad last season.

The highly rated defender made his Chelsea debut in the League Cup win over Bristol Rovers at Stamford Bridge last September and went on to play six times in total during a memorable campaign.

At Academy level, Aina helped us lift three FA Youth Cups and two UEFA Youth Leagues.
