Chelsea youngster Fikayo Tomori, has completed a loan move to Brighton & Hove Albion until the end of the season.

Tomori, who made his Chelsea debut at the end of last season, has now revealed he took advice from his Chelsea team-mate Tammy Abraham, who is on a season-long loan at Bristol City, before completing the move.

“I know a couple of players in the Championship that have played against Brighton, and they said they’re a really good team and really hard to play against,” Tomori told Brighton’s official website.

“I’ve watched a couple of their games in the Championship, including the Sheffield Wednesday game recently.

“There were a few whispers about a possible move at the time, and to be here and involved now is great.

“Everyone knows that Tammy and I are close and he said that Brighton are a top team and every time you play against Brighton, it’s a hard game.

“I’m not here to score 18 goals like he has, but to keep them out! I want to play as much as I can, improve as much as I can and help the team. That’s the main thing.

“It’s really exciting. You want to be playing for a top club and Brighton is a top club to be at. “Obviously they’re near the top of the Championship and hopefully we can finish top of the Championship and win promotion to the Premier League.

“Chelsea have been nothing but supportive and I just want me to express myself, do the best I can and try to help the team and myself as much as possible.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
