AC Milan have exercised their option to sign Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea after the defender was on loan with the Italian club in the second half of the season.

The Serie A club have paid fees of at least $ 33million for Tomori, 23, who joined Milan in January and helped the team secure a Champions League spot by finishing second.

Tomori, who has made 22 appearances and scored a goal for Milan, is under contract until June 2025, the club announced on Thursday.

Tomori was born in Canada to Nigerian parents but represents England. He spent his youth career at Chelsea but also had loan spells at Brighton, Hull and Derby.

It was largely unused under former Blues manager Frank Lampard, who was sacked at the end of January and replaced by Thomas Tuchel.

“From the day I arrived in Milan, I have been welcomed with open arms, and now I’m here to stay,” Tomori said on Instagram. “I look forward to seeing you in San Siro soon. “
