On Friday, Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori joined AC Milan on loan for the remainder of the season. When the loan expires at the end of the current campaign, Serie A leaders AC Milan are assumed to have retained an option to purchase Tomori for 25 million pounds (USD 34 million).

In the close-season, Thiago Silva’s move to Chelsea moved Tomori down the Frank Lampard center-back list. At the heart of Chelsea’s defense, Kurt Zouma, Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen were all vying with Tomori to partner Silva.

Before the start of the season, Canada-born defender Tomori decided to stay and compete for a first-team spot.

This term, however, he made only four appearances, with just one in the Premier League, and has now welcomed the opportunity to move to Italy.

Title-chasing AC Milan will give Tomori a chance at the highest level to prove its worth.

Blues manager Frank Lampard said Tomori still has a “long-term future” with the club despite his temporary departure from western London

Chelsea stated in a tweet, “Fikayo Tomori will spend the rest of this season on loan with Serie A leaders AC Milan,”

The graduate from the academy will continue his growth at San Siro, having been with Chelsea since the level of under eight.

He has made 27 appearances for the Blues so far, including four this season, most recently as a substitute in the FA Cup third-round over Morecambe earlier this month.
