Brighton & Hove Albion signed Chelsea youngster Fikayo Tomori on loan for the remainder of the season, and the Championship club who are currently battling with Newcastle to win the league, are delighted to have signed Tomori on loan for the rest of the season.

The club released in a statement: “We have brought in Fikayo on loan from Chelsea to provide us with some additional cover in the full-back positions, and we are delighted to welcome him to the club.”

“He is a highly-rated young full-back, by both Chelsea and England; he is predominantly a right-back, but he can play in any position across the back four, and will give us good defensive cover for the first-team for the second half of the season.”

“Currently we have a few minor injury issues in the full-back positions, so his arrival will also allow us to send Rob Hunt out on loan to gain valuable playing experience; at this stage of Rob’s development, it will benefit his long-term progression to be playing regular senior football.”

Tomori also revealed that he’s happy to go out and gain valuable time on loan too.
