Fikayo Tomori has been one of the emerging young stars of Chelsea’s youth revolution, and today, he’s committed his future to the club for the next five years (well, four and a half, technically but let’s round up) by putting pen to paper on a new contract though 2024.
“It’s obviously a very proud moment for myself and my family. I’ve been at the club since I was seven years old so I don’t really know much else other than Chelsea.
“The club has been so good to me, looking after and developing me during that time into the player and the person I am today. It’s a dream come true to sign a new five-year contract. I’m really happy the club have shown this faith in me and I’m just excited to carry on.”

Tomori thus joins fellow young homegrown stars Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Mason Mount in signing a new long-term contract this season. Tammy Abraham and Reece James next?
“We are very happy to see another fantastic young player come through from our Academy into the senior team. Fikayo has been with us since he was seven years old and has contributed to many Chelsea successes at youth level.
“Having enjoyed an impressive loan spell at Derby last season, Fikayo had a strong start to this campaign and we are enjoying seeing him grow into a key player for us. We are delighted he has committed to the club for the coming years.”

The future is bright.
