Canada-born England defender Fikayo Tomori has joined AC Milan on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season, as confirmed by the club.
The 23-year old has struggled to break into Chelsea’s first-team squad this season, having featured just the once in the league for Frank Lampard’s side.
In a bid for experience and a bid to help him develop as a player, the Blues have enabled the player to get first-team action elsewhere rather than sit on the bench at Stamford Bridge and A.C. Milan have taken that option.
Serie A leaders Milan are believed to have retained an option to buy Tomori for £25 million ($34 million) when the loan expires at the end of the current campaign.
Thiago Silva’s move to Chelsea in the close-season pushed Tomori down Frank Lampard’s list of centre-backs.
Kurt Zouma, Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen were all competing with Tomori to partner Silva at the heart of Chelsea’s defence.
Tomori has made 27 appearances for the Blues so far, including four this season, most recently as a substitute in the FA Cup third round win over Morecambe earlier this month.”
