Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori has won Derby County’s player of the season award after a string of impressive performances for the Rams this season.
The central defender has spent the season on loan at Frank Lampard’s side and has helped the Rams into a playoff spot as it stands.
Derby are only three games away from securing themselves a spot in the playoffs as they attempt to return to the Premier League after eleven years away.
