Nigeria defender Ola Aina has been named in Torino’s 21-man squad for Sunday’s Serie A away clash with Frosinone at the Stadio Benito Stirpe, reports Completesports.com.

Aina was included in the starting line-up in Torino’s 3-0 win against Chievo Verona at the Stadio Olimpico last weekend but was replaced by Cristain Ansaldi after he picked up an abdominal injury during the pre-match warm-up
exercise.

Aina in Torino squad for Serie A match at Frosinone

There were fears the versatile defender could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after failing to join his colleagues in training this week.

Aina returned to training on Friday and has now been included in the squad for Sunday’s game after proving his fitness during Saturday’s training session.

Aina who is on loan at Torino from Chelsea, has made 22 appearances for the club the season with a goal to his name.

He spent last season on loan at Championship club Hull City where he featured regularly for The Tigers.

There are reports that Torino will make the loan permanent at the end of the season following his impressive performances for the club.

The news will glad the heart of Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr who earlier this week named the versatile defender in his 23-man squad for the team’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Seychelles and the international friendly match against Pharaohs of Egypt billed for the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba later this month.
