Fikayo Tomori is a defender currently playing for Chelsea.


Pre-Chelsea career

Fikayo joined Chelsea at Under-8 level.

Chelsea career

Fikayo made his Under-18 debut as an Under-16 in August 2013 and made half a dozen appearances by Christmas, both at right-back and at centre-back, but his involvement tapered off thereafter as a result of his educational requirements, and the second half of the year was a quieter affair for him. As a first-year scholar in 2014-15 he impressed so often in the first half of the campaign he was promoted to an Under-21 debut before Christmas. Going from strength to strength, he was a key figure in the club's FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League successes and finished the season as an Under-21 regular.

That rapid progress continued unabated in 2015-16 as, not satisfied with becoming a regular at the heart of the defence at all three age groups he was eligible for, he began to contribute at the other end. Having not scored a goal since his Under-16 season, he found the net six times after Christmas including crucial goals in the Finals of both the 2015-16 UEFA Youth League and 2015-16 FA Youth Cup, which combined with his exceptional defensive displays led to further recognition. Training regularly with the first team, he was handed the number 43 shirt and was an unused substitute away to Liverpool at the end of the season before making his senior debut at home to Leicester City on the final day.

Further refining his credentials in the Development Squad in 2016-17, he later joined Brighton on loan in January to provide defensive cover and eventually help them secure promotion to the Premier League, ending a 30+ year exile from the top flight. That yielded a full season at Hull City in 2017-18, where he joined Ola Aina and Michael Hector, and made 26 appearances in all competitions.


Fikayo was born in Canada to Nigerian parents before moving to England at a very young age. He is eligible to represent all three countries and in November 2015 was called up by Canada's Under-20 team. Later that same season he was called up by England for the European Under-19 Championships and has gone on to represent them at Under-20 and Under-21 level too.
