AC Milan trigger option to buy Tomori from Chelsea for reported €28M
Milan, June 17, 2021 (AFP) - Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has made his loan move to AC Milan permanent, agreeing a four-year deal with the Serie A runners-up on Thursday.
The 23-year-old English player arrived last January on loan with the club exercising their option to buy for a reported 28 million euro ($33.4 million).
"AC Milan is delighted to announce the exercising of the option for the permanent transfer of Oluwafikayomi Oluwadamilola Tomori from Chelsea," the club said in a statement.
"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."
Canada-born defender Tomori joined Chelsea in 2016, but fell out of favour with previous coach Frank Lampard, making just four appearances last season, with only one in the Premier League, before deciding to move to Italy.
Milan finished second in Serie A last season to return to Champions League football for the first time since the 2013-2014 season.
