Leeds United are reportedly exploring the possibility of signing Fikayo Tomori on a short-term loan from Chelsea.

The England international has fallen down the pecking order this term and has made only three appearances in all competitions.

He is currently behind Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the pecking order for a central defensive role and  has been fancied to be loaned out.

The Whites are known to be admirers of his services and BBC Sport claims that Marcelo Bielsa's side could propose to sign him on a temporary deal this month.

The west Yorkshire outfit are currently without central defender Robin Koch for the long-term after a knee surgery and Tomori has been identified as the number one target to fill the void.

Tomori has dropped out of national team contention with his reduced gametime and he needs regular first-team football during the backend of the season to have any chance of a recall ahead of Euro 2020.
