“The defender has signed a contract until June 30, 2021, but AC Milan have an option to make the deal permanent,” it added.
The defender will wear the No 23 shirt while playing for Stefano Pioli’s side.
Born in Canada to Nigerian parents and raised in England, Tomori joined Chelsea’s academy at the age of eight and made his Premier League debut with the London-based club in 2016.
During his time with Chelsea’s senior team, he has been loaned out to Brighton & Hove Albion, Hull City, and Derby County. He had to secure a loan move to AC Milan due to the lack of playing time having played only four matches this season.
