Chelsea full-back Ola Aina is set to join Championship side Hull City on loan next season, according to ESPN.

The 20 year old has caught the eye of Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky, who is also very close friends with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Aina has failed to provide competition to Victor Moses at the right wing back position this season, only managing to make six appearances in total this past season and of those 6, only 2 were made from the start.

According to WhoScored.com, he was slightly above average when he played getting an overall 6.12 rating out of 10 but he averaged a very high 87.5% pass success percentage showing us that he is very good at making the right decision when and where to pass the ball.

Aina would be a good fit for Hull in terms of his versatility, being able to play either full-back role.
