Fikayo Tomori signs new five-year Chelsea deal
Posted on December 13, 2019
Fikayo Tomori has been one of the Premier League’s breakout stars this season and he has been handsomely rewarded for his efforts.
On Thursday, Chelsea announced that the centre-back, who turns 22 next week, has signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2024.
After starring under Frank Lampard on loan and making 55 appearances last season at Derby County, Tomori has inserted himself immediately into the Chelsea starting XI and made 16 appearances in all competitions, contributing a goal and an assist, as per iSports API.
Gareth Southgate has taken notice of the young star, calling Tomori up on two occasions and giving him his first cap last month in Euro 2020 qualifying against Kosovo.
“It’s obviously a very proud moment for myself and my family,” Tomori told the Chelsea website. “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.”
Tomori’s previous deal was set to expire at the end of the 2021 season.
