Ola Aina may not have had a chance to make an impression at Stamford Bridge yet but he's already earned our respect.

The 19-year-old defender is yet to make a senior appearance for Chelsea but he's hotly tipped to follow Ruben Loftus-Cheek into the first-team set up after winning the U21 Premier League, FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League with the Blues.

Although his career is still young, Aina's sponsorship with adidas means he's already been through more boots than we'll see in a lifetime – and instead of throwing them away or storing them as mementos, he's donating them to Nigeria.

Writing on Instagram, Aina said:

"All my old boots, balls and kits being shipped off to the motherland (Lagos Nigeria) this morning to the less fortunate #giveback #2nddrop #nigeria"

Aina's got real ability on the pitch, too.

The youngster came to the attention of football fans less than a month ago when he rifled in a stunning strike from his own half in an U21 game against Spurs.

With an eye for goal and random acts of kindness, he must have been learning from Didier Drogba in his last stint at Chelsea.
