Kai Havertz taking jersey no 29 not the reason Tomori going on loan to Everton

Kai Havertz taking jersey no 29 not the reason Tomori going on loan to Everton

Kai Havertz will don the jersey number 29 for Chelsea when the season starts this month and that has nothing to do with Fikayo Tomori going out on loan to Everton.

There are no truth in reports suggesting Chelsea are forcing Fikayo Tomori to go out on loan so he doesn’t feel hard done by when his jersey number is given to their new import, Kai Havertz.

It was Fikayo Tomori who wore the jersey number 29 last season, before him was Samuel Eto’o and Alvaro Morata and it would certainly be Kai Havertz this season.

According to Simon Johnson of The Athletic UK, FIkayo Tomori was willing to relinquish his jersey number to Kai Havertz even before Everton came knocking on his door.

MISSED THIS?  Joe Aribo close to Southampton move.

Kai Havertz was said to have told Chelsea upon completion of his deal that he would continue to wear his favourite jersey number 29.

Hence, Fikayo Tomori going out on loan nothing to do with the jersey number taking from him but about him getting playing time at Everton.

Tomori becomes the latest Chelsea player to go out on loan after Ethan Ampadu to Sheffield United, Kennedy to Granada.
