The Blues academy graduate made 27 appearances at Stamford Bridge.

Fikayo Tomori has completed a permanent move from Chelsea to AC Milan after a successful loan spell in Italy.

The 23-year-old joined the Serie A club in January after struggling for first-team opportunities during the first half of last season.

Milan had the option to buy Tomori for a £25million fee at the conclusion of his loan and that has been exercised after he played 22 times and helped them qualify for the Champions League during the 2020-21 campaign.

A four-year deal has been agreed at San Siro for the defender, who has made one appearance for England but missed out on the squad for this summer's European Championships.

Tomori progressed through the Chelsea academy and made his debut for the Blues at the end of the 2015-16 season, but spent much of the next few years on loan with spells at Brighton, Hull and Derby.

It was at the latter where the centre-back linked up with Frank Lampard, who handed the youngster more opportunities in the Premier League once he had taken over at Stamford Bridge.

An England call-up followed and Tomori earned his solitary cap in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo in November, 2019.

Chances proved to be few and far between after the coronavirus pandemic and one of Lampard's final acts as Chelsea manager was to allow the defender – who made 27 appearances for the Blues – to join AC Milan on loan for the second half of last season, which has now been turned into a permanent move.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
