Fikayo Tomori moved to England at an early age and joined Chelsea's Academy at Under-8 level. He was part of the club's back-to-back winning Uefa Youth League and FA Youth Cup sides in 2015 and 2016

He signed his first senior contract in 2016 but his Chelsea career failed to flourish and he embarked on several loans, including Brighton, Hull City, Derby County and finally AC Milan before earning a permanent move to the Serie A giants.

Early days at Chelsea

Tomori experienced success with Chelsea's youth team as he won the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup in 2015 and 2016.

He reached the first team in 2016 but only made cameos - and failed to make a single appearance on the tour of the USA.

He signed a four-year contract to stay at Stamford Bridge in 2016.

Brighton and Hove Albion

Tomori joined Brighton on loan for the rest of that season and made his Seagulls debut against Lincoln City at Sincil Bank.

Hull City

In August 2017, the defender joined Hull City in the Championship on a season-long loan and made his debut the following month in a 2-1 defeat to Fulham.

Derby County

Tomori flourished in a season-long loan move to Derby County under Frank Lampard in 2018 and was part of the Rams side that lost 2-1 to Aston Villa in the 2019 Championship play-off final.

Tomori was named 'Player of the Year' during his season-long stay with the Rams.

Return to Chelsea

After his loan at Derby County expired, Tomori returned to Chelsea and fared better than he did in his original spell.

He made his first start against Sheffield United and scored his first goal away at Wolverhampton Wanderers in a 5-2 win for Chelsea.

Against Hull, he scored a header in a 2-1 win at the KCOM Stadium in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

He made 22 appearances that season.

AC Milan

In January 2021, Tomori joined AC Milan for the remainder of the season with an option to buy.

He became the first Englishman to sign for Rossoneri since David Beckham in 2009.

He joined countrymen Tammy Abraham and Chris Smalling of AS Roma in switching to Serie A.

In the summer of 2021, the defender signed a permanent deal to stay with Milan until June 2025.

Milan won their 19th Serie A title - but first for 11 years - in 2022, with Tomori making 33 league appearances.
