Chelsea legend Ashley Cole believes that Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori are ready to graduate to the Blues’ first team. The young duo were sent on loan to Derby ahead of this season. The 20-year-old Mount has been impressive in the Championship and played 36 times for Frank Lampard’s side during the season, scoring eight goals and notching four assists.
Chelsea legend and current Derby manager Frank Lampard has hailed the Blues’ decision of letting on-loan duo Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori play against them in the League Cup, calling it a “classy” move.
When former Blues great Frank Lampard took his first step into football management with Derby County early in the summer, there was always this idea that he was gonna raid his former club, Chelsea, for talent in a bid to guide The Rams back to the English top tier for the first time since the 2007-2008 season.
Derby County have officially signed Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount on a season-long loan, with the talented youngster joining former Blues favourite and now Rams manager Frank Lampard at Pride Park.
Chelsea ended a dreadful season with the FA Cup victory against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. However, many around Stamford Bridge will see that as a minor success in a year that should have promised a lot.
