The defender will be ending his temporary stay with the Tigers at the end of the term and he is delighted with his improvement at the club

Fikayo Tomori is satisfied with his development at English Championship side Hull City this season.

The 20-year-old defender joined the KCOM Stadium outfit on loan from Chelsea last summer in a bid to get playing time and he has featured in 25 games for the Tigers in all competitions.

With two games left before the end of the season, the Anglo-Nigerian is pleased with his improvement during his stay so far at the English second-tier side.

“Definitely! I feel as though I've learnt an awful lot," Tomori told club website.

"In what is my first full loan spell away from my parent club, I’ve played a decent amount of games.

"I’ve learned an awful lot, playing against different teams who play the game in different ways. I’ve learned a lot about the game itself - more so the physical side of things along with my positioning, awareness and concentration.

"It has been challenging at times - being in and out of the side - but that's what football is all about. You have to be able to deal with that if you want to have a long career in the game.

"It's been a big test for me. Looking back, there's been times where I can say I've done well and there have been some experiences that I can only learn from.

"I think my game has improved a lot through being here though. I'm grateful for the opportunity that this club has given me and I just want to end it all on a positive note."

The youngster will be hoping to make his 22nd league start when Hull take on Cardiff City on Saturday.
