Tomori south coast switch

Fikayo Tomori has today joined Brighton & Hove Albion on loan until the end of the season.

Tomori moves to the AMEX Stadium for his first spell away from Stamford Bridge.

The 19-year-old, who can play in central defence or at right-back, was part of our Academy teams which won the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League in both 2014/15 and 2015/16.

Tomori also won the Chelsea Academy Player of the Year award last season following a string of impressive performances, making his debut for the first team on the final day of last season in a 1-1 draw against Leicester City.

Brighton are currently second in the Championship, just one point behind leaders Newcastle United.
