Chelsea starlet Ola Aina has today joined the Championship side Hull City for the 2017/18 season.

Ola Aina has joined Hull City on a season long loan deal and became the first summer signing of the Tigers under Slutsky`s reign.

The highly rated defender will be spending his first ever season away from Stamford Bridge as he made the loan move to the Championship side to get the taste of regular first team football . The England born right back was handed his first senior team debut by Antonio Conte in the 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers in the EFL cup at Stamford Bridge last September.

During his early days at the Chelsea academy he has helped the Chelsea youth team to lift three FA Youth cups and two UEFA Youth Leagues.

Leonid Slutsky enjoys a good relationship with the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and this might help him to get more Chelsea academy products on loan to secure his side`s promotion to the Premier League in the next campaign.
