 Hull City Confirm Chelsea Defenders Will Not Be Signed On A Permanent Basis
  that Nigerian defenders Ola Aina and Fikayo Tomori have returned to their parent clubs following the expiry of their loan deals.

The two right-backs were left out of the Tigers squad for their post-season trip to Kenya, fueling speculation that the club will not be signing them on a permanent basis in the summer transfer window.

On Aina, Hull City stated : ''Aina was the first of the Chelsea loanees to join the Tigers on a temporary basis in July and went on to make 46 appearances in all competitions.

''His one and only goal in a black and amber shirt came in the FA Cup Third Round victory over Blackburn Rovers in January.''

The Tigers added : ''Tomori - a third loan signing from Chelsea - arrived on the final day of the summer transfer window and went on to make 26 appearances for the Club in all competitions.''

Ola Aina is expected to be included in Nigeria's provisional World Cup squad list which will be announced in the coming days and will compete with Monaco's Elderson Echiejile and Amkar Perm's Brain Idowu for the left-back spot at the training camp ahead of the mundial.
