Premier League side Leeds United have been linked with a January loan move for Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori.
Tomori has been given permission to leave Chelsea on loan this January after struggling for game time this season but joining Leeds United might not be right for the Chelsea defender.
While Leeds United have earned plaudits for their free-flowing, attacking football this season under Marcelo Bielsa’s but have also conceded more goals (33) than all but one Premier League side.
Leeds style of play leave their defenders too exposed and it might not really help Tomori’s development.
There’s also no guarantee Tomori will play regularly at Leeds United as Bielsa is known to take his time before giving chances to new signings.
Eddie Nketiah found that out last term; his season-long loan from Arsenal was cut short in January due to a lack of regular game time. And this season Brazilian winger Raphinha had to wait a month for his first Premier League start after from Rennes.
Tomori requires a head coach who will put him straight into the side and trust him to prove his quality on the pitch and Bielsa isn’t that man.
