Official: AC Milan sign defender Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea – the details

By Oliver Fisher -

Fikayo Tomori has completed a loan move from Chelsea to AC Milan, it has been confirmed.

A statement on Milan’s official website confirms that Tomori has joined the Rossoneri on loan for the rest of the season with an option to buy as part of the deal.

Fabrizio RomanoMatt Law and Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanNews) all stated last night that Tomori to Milan is a done deal and that it is a loan with an option to buy at €28m (£25m).

Tomori joined Chelsea at under-8 level and progressed through the club’s academy system making his debut as a teenager at the back end of the 2015-16 campaign, coming on for Branislav Ivanović in the 60th minute.

Tomori signed a new four-year contract ahead of the 2016–17 season and spent time on loan at Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion in the 2016–17 campaign.

Tomori joined Championship side Hull City on a season-long loan the following campaign, and then the season after he was at Derby County under then-manager Frank Lampard, where he was named the club’s “Player of the Year”.

He broke out in the Chelsea first team last season making 15 Premier League appearances, but he has found playing time much harder to come by this season with Lampard rarely even including him in the match day squad.

Further details such as shirt number plus his first interview with the club will follow soon. Welcome to the family, Fikayo!
