Chelsea sent their best wishes to Fikayo Tomori who joined Serie A side AC Milan on loan.
Tomori was unveiled as the Rossoneri player on Friday evening. He will stay at the club until the end of the season.
Chelsea who made the announcement also took to their official twitter handle to wish the 23-year-old the best at his new club.
Milan are understood to have retained an option to buy Tomori for £25million in the summer, following the loan.
“Fikayo Tomori will spend the rest of this season on loan with Serie A leaders AC Milan,” Chelsea confirmed in a statement.
“The academy graduate will continue his development at San Siro having been with Chelsea since under-eights level.
“He has made 27 appearances for the Blues so far, including four this season, most recently as a substitute in the FA Cup third round win over Morecambe earlier this month.”
Tomori was struggling at Chelsea particularly after Thiago Silva’s arrival, with Kurt Zouma, Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen all also ahead of him in the pecking order.
The Canada-born defender had at first chosen to stay and fight for his place at Chelsea. But changed his mind after Milan made a big loan offer.
He will wear the No 23 shirt at the club.
