    reported speech: tomorrow/the day after

    He said, "I'll go to the library tomorrow."
    He said he would go to the library the next day/the day after.

    Am I right to say that both phrases can be used in reported speech?

    Many thanks.

    I wouldn't say "the day after"

    I'd say;

    "the next day"
    "the following day"
