Chelsea of England defender, Fikayo Tomori has entered the transfer window of Newcastle United, thereby according him permutations in the possibility of a move to Saint James’ Park next month, megasportsarena.com reports.
Speculation has reached feverish pitch over the possibility of a January transfer deal for the Nigerian-born lad, as he has since fallen down the perking order at Stamford Bridge, and he could be wont to seek a new lease of life outside London in the coming month.
The initial projection for Tomori, who was born to Nigerian parents in Canada but has opted to play at international level for England, is that he could leave Chelsea on loan, just as he did last season at Derby County, where he played under The Blues’ current coach, Frank Lampard in the English Championship.
However, his initial favoured days under Lampard at Stamford Bridge, when Tomori started all earlier matches of the season for the London-based side, have turned around full circle for the dark-skinned stopper.
A report by British tabloid, The Mirror has now disclosed that Tomori could swap West London for The Toon come January, as he seeks better trappings to boost his chances with England’s squad, which have been dampened after he became starved of game time under Lampard.
On the other hand, Newcastle coach, Steve Bruce would be ready to give Tomori enough playing time in his squad for the second half of the season, but an additional report by The Northern Echo disclosed that The Magpies would only likely be able to sign any incoming new player on loan in the upcoming window.
Newcastle owner, Mike Ashley coughed up £35m on Jamal Lewis and Callum Wilson in the summer window and is unlikely to welcome any more heavy spending in a full transfer, but Lampard is also most likely bound to favour a loan proposal for Tomori in January.
