Chelsea defender Tomori set for Italy flight as AC Milan move nears completion

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori will fly to Italy in the coming days to seal a loan move to AC Milan.

The 23-year-old has made just four appearances in all competitions this season.

And according to Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, Tomori's loan move to AC Milan will be completed next week with the defender set to travel to Italy imminently.

It has been reported that Tomori will join Milan on a six-month loan deal which includes an option to buy for £27m.

Newcastle United and Leeds United had shown interest in Tomori but the England international wanted to try his hand at playing abroad.
