The Blues have begun working on a new contract for 21-year-old defender Fikayo Tomori after his impressive start to the season. Chelsea aim to secure young defender to a new deal before the end of October.
Following the expiration of his loan at Derby, Tomori returned to Chelsea and was given the No. 29 shirt. Tomori made his first start for Chelsea against Sheffield United, which ended a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge. He scored his first goal for the Blues in a 5-2 away win over Wolves, opening the scoring with a long-range curler from outside the box.
He is currently under contract until the summer of 2021, which means he has 2 more years in his present contract. La Gazzetta Dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira has revealed that the Blues have opened talks with Tomori over a new contract which would see him commit to the club until 2024.

Both Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek penned new deals in July, whilst the Blues recently confirmed a five-year extension for winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Now Chelsea aim to secure young defender to new deal that will keep Tomori at the club till 2024.
Fikayo Tomori has been a revelation since being promoted to the Chelsea first team. He has started Chelsea’s last four games and has been one of the standout performers of Frank Lampard’s reign at Stamford Bridge.
