Premier League giants Chelsea have concluded plans to offer Nigerian-born English defender Fikayo Tomori a new contract this summer.

This is according to the publication from the London Evening Standard which claimed that Chelsea want to offer the young centre back a new contract shortly after he came close to joining fellow Premier League outfit Everton.

Fikayo Tomori was close to signing for Everton on loan before the transfer window ended on Thursday.

The Everton transfer was called off after the Blues agreed on a deal with Arsenal for another defender.

Arsenal and Chelsea agreed a deal reported to be around £8m for Brazilian centre back David Luiz.

The David Luiz transfer to Arsenal ensured that the Everton loan move for Fikayo Tomori was called off.

Fikayo Tomori has two years left on his current contract at Chelsea having signed the existing deal in 2016.

His contract will expire at the end of the 2020/21 season.

The 21-year-old centre back spent the whole of last season on loan at English Championship club Derby County under the guidance of current Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

Tomori and Lampard were instrumental to the successes recorded by Derby County who reached the Championship playoff final before losing to Aston Villa.
