England Under-20 international of Nigerian descent, Fikayo Tomori, has joined fellow Chelsea players Michael Hector and Ola Aina on a season loan deal at English Championship outfit Hull City.
Tomori who was on Chelsea bench in their last three English Premier League games, left for Hull after the arrival of full-back, Davide Zappacosta, from Torino.
The move is Tomori’s second loan deal away from Stamford Bridge having spent last season away at Brighton & Hove Albion who earned promotion to the English Premier League.
The 19-year-old defender won the UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup twice with Chelsea Academy and was also part of the England U-20 squad that won the FIFA World Cup in South Korea.
Hull City are currently eighth in the table after five games.
Tomori is eligible to represent Nigeria at international level through his parents, Canada through his birth in Calgary and England through his upbringing having lived in the country since he was a toddler. On 27 March 2016, Tomori captained Canada U20 to a 2–1 victory over England U20 on his third appearance for the nation.
