Fikayo Tomori only recently signed a new five-year contract with Chelsea, and the young defender has revealed his excitement at committing his future to the club.

Tomori is playing in his first season in the Premier League, and the 21-year-old has impressed so far, earning him a new contract with the club.

Tomori has revealed that the contract is a confidence booster for him and has vowed to repay the faith placed in him by the manager and the club.

He said in an interview with the official Chelsea website: “The club has shown a lot of faith in me, given me a lot of good times and I’ve experienced a lot of things so I just want to experience even more now.

“It fills me with a lot of confidence going into the rest of the season. I think I’ve been playing pretty well so far this season so for the club to reward me with a new contract is a great confidence-booster and I just want to repay that on the pitch now.”

Tomori missed Chelsea’s Champions League victory over Lille on Tuesday due to a hip injury and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has ruled the defender out of the Premier League clash against Bournemouth but reported he should be back in training next week.

Lampard said: “Tomori is not fit for the game, following on from the other day. Hopefully he should be training next week.”
