Chelsea centre-back Fikayo Tomori would be open to leaving the club on a permanent basis, according to reports in England.
Manager Frank Lampard revealed at the weekend that the 23-year-old did not start against Morecambe in the FA Cup as the defender could well be loaned out, but it appears the player may have other ideas.
Tomori has only played four games in all competitions for the Blues this season, with just one substitute appearance in the Premier League, and while they would regret him leaving, fans on Twitter would understand his departure:
The one player sale I’ll never forgive Chelsea for.

Would be a poor decision to let him leave.Would much rather see Christensen be moved on.

It’s been a difficult 12 months for the England international. He featured regularly in the first half of Frank Lampard’s first season in charge but he struggled to even make the bench following Project Restart.
The likes of Leeds and Newcastle have been interested in loaning Tomori but it remains to be seen who would be keen on signing him permanently.
