LAGOS JUNE 11TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Torino have completed the capture of Nigeria defender Ola Aina, the club president Urbano Cairo has revealed.
The Italian club signed Aina outright from Chelsea for €10m despite Chelsea’s apparent counter-option.
The details of Aina’s deal was however not revealed by Cairo.

Aina spent last season on loan at Torino from Chelsea playing 29 times and scored once for the Granata last season.
“We’ve redeemed Aina for €10m, as well as Cristian Ansaldi, and Koffi Djidji. Now Torino own all their players,” Cairo said at the Lega Serie A assembly held in Milan on Monday.
Aina made Nigeria’s final squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nation billed to hold in Egypt.
Torino finished in seventh place with 63 points last season, three away from qualification for the Europa League.
“We fought for a European place until the end of the season. We were in the running for a Champions League place but missed out by a few points,” Cairo added.
