Fikayo Tomori has officially come to Milan until the end of the season.
Milan have been looking for a central defender to strengthen the department and they got their hands on Tomori.
Negotiations between the Rossoneri and the Blues progressed well over the last days and today Fikayo arrived in Milano and signed the contract with the Diavolo.
“Milan is delighted to announce the signing of Oluwafikayomi Oluwadamilola Tomori on loan from Chelsea FC until the end of the season. The defender has signed a contract until June 30, 2021, but Milan have an option to make the deal permanent,” a statement on the website reads.
“Tomori was born in Calgary (Canada) on December 19, 1997. He spent his youth career at Chelsea and made his Premier League debut with the London-based club in 2016. Between January 2017 and June 2019, Tomori played for Brighton (10 appearances), Hull City (26 appearances) and Derby County (55 appearances and 2 goals) before returning to Chelsea, where he registered 27 appearances and 2 goals. Born in Canada, he became a British citizen through naturalization. Tomori played 3 games for the Canada Under-20 team before deciding to represent England internationally – he was part of the England Under-20 team that won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2017 and made his debut for the England senior side in November 2019.
“The defender will wear the number 23 jersey.” According to Sky Italia, the buy-out option for Tomori is set at £25m (€28.2m). He’ll try to impress Milan enough to use their option.
