Why Chelsea will reportedly not allow Tomori to leave on loan in January

Why Chelsea will reportedly not allow Tomori to leave on loan in January

Tomori out in the cold

Fikayo Tomori enjoyed a solid breakout season with Chelsea, notching 22 appearances across all competitions.

As the likes of Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Reece James and more were handed the chance to impress, Frank Lampard appeared to be ushering in a new era at Stamford Bridge.

However, whilst the rest of the aforementioned youngsters have continued to shine under Lampard, Tomori has fallen seriously out of favour.

This comes with Thiago Silva’s addition having taken Chelsea’s central-defensive options to five.

In turn, Tomori has been limited to just three appearances this season – only one of which came in the Premier League, lasting just 45 minutes.

Tomori to stay put

As a result, with the winter window now upon us, it would make sense to see the 23-year-old depart the Bridge, even just on loan, to earn regular game-time during a key stage in his development.

Newcastle United have previously been tipped to make a move for the stopper this season.

However, any hopes which Tomori may have had regarding a Chelsea exit this month appear to have taken a major hit.

This comes with Andreas Christensen having suffered a knee injury.

As per the Sun, Chelsea fear that their Danish stopper will be sidelined for a significant period.

This, of course, would leave the Blues with just three fit first-team centre-backs – including a 36-year-old Thiago Silva – in the case that Tomori was allowed to move on.
