Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori left the club on loan in January for Serie A side AC Milan after playing just two league games for the Blues in 2020.

Asked if he has a long-term plan for Tomori, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel replied: “To be very, very honest, right here I did not spend too many minutes thinking about Tomori, not because I don’t like him and not that I don’t see potential but every minute here at Cobham is for the guys who are here.

“It is tradition at Chelsea that many players are on loan, they get minutes somewhere else when they cannot make regular minutes here. This is good because it is always the target for me to have players that can make it in different circumstances, that can show their qualities in different cultures and clubs, this is always a good sign.

“We will have this talk in the next weeks and months about the guys who are away on loan but of course I have a general impression of Tomori which means he has high, high potential but I am not into details right now.

“This will come when it comes.”
