Ola Aina is a defender currently playing in Chelsea's Academy team.
Ola joined Chelsea at Under-11 after a successful trial.
Ola made his Under-18 debut as an Under-16 in November 2012. He impressed in his first few appearances and earned starts in both legs of the Semi Final and Final of the 2012-13 FA Youth Cup, despite having a number of older alternatives ahead of him in the theoretical pecking order.
He continued to impress at right-back in the first half of the 2013-14 season, including spending time with the Under-21 squad and earning a professional contract upon his 17th birthday in October. The longer the season went on the more responsibility he was given; featuring at both full-back spots during the run to the FA Youth Cup Final and then being given his first starts at Under-21 level against Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United in a relatively unfamiliar position of centre-back. He passed with flying colours as Chelsea won the Under-21 Premier League title.
A regular across all competitions in 2014-15, he made his mark again as another FA Youth Cup followed, as did the 2014-15 UEFA Youth League crown. As reward for a fine season, he joined the first team squad on the post-season tour of Thailand and Australia. An England Under-21 call-up kicked off his 2015-16 season, as did pre-season first-team appearances under Jose Mourinho, but as rumours of a contract dispute emerged he was allegedly frozen out of first-team affairs. He remained a force at Under-21 level and won his second UEFA Youth League as a leader in a young team.
Ola has been capped by England at every level up to Under-20 whilst receiving an uncapped Under-21 call-up. However, in 2017, he accepted an invitation to represent Nigeria, and made his senior debut in October of that year in a World Cup Qualifier against Zambia.
