The international switch of Chelsea defender, Ola Aina from England to Nigeria is almost complete, AOIFootball.com can authoritatively report.
The England-born player, who is of Nigerian descent, has indicated interest to play for Nigeria instead of his country of birth- England, and the process to see him feature for the Super Eagles has been on for about four months but latest news from the Glass House reveals the switch is almost done.
The last document that needs to be submitted to FIFA has been passed on to the world football governing body and the English FA has also been very supportive.
Aina is expected to be ready and available when the Eagles lock horns against the indomitable Lions of Cameroon in back to back games in September. The 19-year-old has just been loaned out by Chelsea to Championship based side Hull City for the whole of 2017/2018 season.
