Leeds United reportedly looks like the most likely transfer destination for Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori this January.
This is according to a piece of the transfer window in BBC Sport, which also looks at other sagas taking place this winter, and Tomori is expected to go to Leeds to give them more defensive cover.
Tomori has always seemed like a promising young player and had plenty of action in the first team last season, although he has now slipped further down the pecking order on Frank Lampard’s team.
So it might make sense for him to go ahead and join Leeds, where he would likely play more regularly, although the BBC Sport report is not entirely clear whether he would be joining on loan or permanently.
Many Chelsea fans will probably hope it is just a loan, and Tomori will surely have the potential to return to Stamford Bridge as a better player at the end of the season.
On the other hand, some Blues fans may have given up on the 23-year-old as well and will just hope the club can raise some transfer funds by letting him go.
Leeds are off to a brilliant start in the Premier League and, be it a loan or a permanent deal, this could be a solid business for them.
