Young Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has signed a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge according to official club sources.

The 21-year-old Canada-born full-back has impressed for The Blues this season after being given his first senior start by manager Frank Lampard against Sheffield United in August.

It has now been revealed that Tomori has been rewarded for his bright campaign to date with a new five-year contract which will see him remain with The Blues until summer 2024.

The youngster joined Chelsea at the age of just seven and has successfully graduated through the various age groups at Stamford Bridge. Tomori made his senior debut back in 2016 when he came off the bench against Leicester City on the final day of the season. That appearance had been his one and only for the South West Londoners until making the breakthrough this term. The defender has already made 16 appearances for The Blues in all competitions while he scored his first goal for the club in the 5-2 victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers in September.

During his time out of favour at The Bridge, Tomori was loaned out on three separate occasions. He spent a half-season at Brighton & Hove Albion before enjoying season-long loans at both Hull City and Derby County.
