Leeds closely monitoring €20m-rated Chelsea defender

Fikayo Tomori did get to see some action for the London giants today with Morecambe after the match was already won, but it’s hard to see him playing regularly in the second half of the campaign.

England international’s a good PL standard centre-back with the pace to improve a lot of defences so it does look like a loan spell would be the best thing for him.

There have been a few different claims going around about Fikayo’s future in the past week, but it appeared that he wouldn’t get to go anywhere after reports of the club blocking a loan move after an injury to Andreas Christensen.

That led to further claims that Tomori had demanded to leave and he was even open to a permanent exit if necessary, so that could explain why Frank Lampard has publicly admitted that he could leave this month.

It’s likely that there will be plenty of interest from other sides this month and at least it would give him an opportunity to play regularly and show what he can do, so it makes sense for everyone to let him go. Tomori is keen to leave the club on-loan this month.

Though, it’s unclear whether a knee injury sustained by Christensen during the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa will leave the London giants reluctant to let him go.

The English centre-back would have ideally liked to have something lined up prior to the opening of the transfer window, but we’re almost a third of the way through it already and there doesn’t appear to have been any considerable movement on his future.
