Official: Chelsea confirm Fikayo Tomori has signed new deal

Tomori pens new deal

Fikayo Tomori is a product of Chelsea’s youth system.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Championship outfit Derby County, where he was managed by now-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

And since Lampard has taken the reins at Chelsea, he has given Tomori a lot of game-time.

The young central defender had no experience in the English top-flight prior to this season.

However, Lampard would put his faith in Tomori and, for the most-part, he has been rewarded.

Tomori has been in solid form for the London outfit this term, and even earned a call-up to England’s last squad.

And after impressing under Lampard, the Blues have now tied Tomori down to a fresh contract.

Chelsea confirmed on Thursday evening that Tomori has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal, keeping him at the club until 2024.

On signing his new deal, Tomori stated:

“It’s obviously a very proud moment for myself and my family. I’ve been at the club since I was seven years old so I don’t really know much else other than Chelsea.

“The club has been so good to me, looking after and developing me during that time into the player and the person I am today.

“It’s a dream come true to sign a new five-year contract. I’m really happy the club have shown this faith in me and I’m just excited to carry on.” As quoted by Chelsea’s official website.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth

Tomori would miss out on Chelsea’s last tie vs Lille in midweek, due to a small hip problem.

But the Chelsea faithful will likely be hopeful that Tomori can be back for their clash this weekend.

Chelsea’s next tie sees them face off with Bournemouth on Saturday.

Chelsea’s recent form has not been great, with the Blues losing three of their last four Premier League outings.

However, they should be able to put an end to that dismal run on Saturday, as Bournemouth are down to 15th in the PL, having lost their last five league ties.
