Transfer News! Fikayo Takes Massive Twist As Leeds Not “Interested” In Chelsea Defender
Leeds United are not interested in signing Chelsea outcast Fikayo Tomori in the January window.
Tomori, 23, has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after being frozen out of the first-team by manager Frank Lampard.
However, according to Phil Hay and Simon Johnson of The Athletic, Marcelo Bielsa is content with his options at the back and isn’t looking to bring in Tomori, despite summer signing Robin Koch out with a long-term injury.
After a frustrating few months in west London, Tomori had emerged as a target for the likes of Leeds and Newcastle in recent weeks, with a loan switch in January looking increasingly likely.
Chelsea wanted to send Tomori out on loan at another Premier League club in January. It has, since then, emerged that Ligue 1 outfit Rennes are bidding to secure the Englishman’s signature as well.
Tomori has struggled for game-time so far this season, with Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma having formed a solid partnership at the heart of the defence.
