Chelsea set to keep hold of Tomori after Christensen injury setback

Chelsea are set to keep hold of Fikayo Tomori this month.

The Sun says Tomori hopes of a loan move away from Chelsea look to have been scuppered by a knee injury suffered by Andreas Christensen.

Tomori had been hoping to secure a temporary deal this month after finding his first team chances limited at Stamford Bridge this season.

But centre-back Christensen has undergone scans on the injury suffered in the draw with Aston Villa.

And the club fear that will leave him sidelined for a period.

That leaves Chelsea boss Frank Lampard short of defensive options.

And Tomori is now seen as needed in the first team squad for the foreseeable future.
