After a successful six-month loan spell with AC Milan, Fikayo Tomori has signed a five-year deal with the Rossoneri which means he has committed to the club until 2025.
The Blues defender signed for a fee believed to be £25million and rising to £30million.
Milan confirmed the news in a statement on Wednesday, saying: “AC Milan is delighted to announce the exercising of the option for the permanent transfer of Oluwafikayomi Oluwadamilola Tomori from Chelsea.
“The English defender, who made 22 appearances and scored one goal over the last season, will continue to play with the Club until 30 June 2025.”
It brings to an end a 16-year association with the Blues for centre back Tomori, who joined the club’s academy as an under 8.
The 2020/21 season was more of a struggle for Tomori as he lost his spot under Frank Lampard and made just four appearances in the first six months of the campaign before he was allowed to leave and join the Italian giants.
Having made 22 appearances in the red and black of Milan and having impressed coach Stefano Pioli as well as the Milan supporters, the Serie A side have decided to take up the £25million option they have on the 22-year-old to take him to the club permanently.
