Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori will spend the rest of this season on loan in Italy with Serie A high-flyers AC Milan.
The Canadian-born defender, who made his international debut for England in November 2019, has previously spent time with Brighton, Hull and Derby in the Championship before becoming a member of the senior squad at Stamford Bridge last season.
Tomori has made 27 appearances for Chelsea, having been at the Premier League club since under-8’s level.
“He absolutely has a long-term future at this club,” his Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said recently.
“We’ll see if or when he goes on loan but the moment I got close to Fikayo was when I took him to Derby with me and he was player of the year there and one of the best players in the Championship that year in my opinion.
“He came back here and played 20-plus games for us at a very young age last year and got in the England squad”.
“In my head there is an absolute long-term plan for Fikayo about his career here. If it is to go and play games on loan it will be to absolutely enhance his personal development and hopefully help whatever team he goes to, because that will go hand in hand, and he will come back to us a better player.”
