Chelsea FC defender Fikayo Tomori has revealed that he pulled out of a move to West Ham in the summer.
The England international was heavily linked with a move out of Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Thiago Silva but a move didn’t materialize even on the final day of the transfer window with the Hammers having been confident of landing his services.
Speaking to Chelsea's Mike'd Up podcast, Tomori explained: “I wanted to make sure that whatever decision I made was really thought out and try to do what's best for me.
“I tried as much as I can to do what is best for me and the way that transfers are, some days you are up here and you feel like it is all rolling, then sometimes nothing happens at all and you have to deal with the situation you are put in."
Apart from West Ham, the player had been linked with a move to the Serie A and the Bundesliga but Chelsea failed to offload him with the player now having to fight for a place together with the likes of Thiago Silva, Kourt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Christesen.
