Chelsea starlet on the verge of joining Newcastle on season-long loan

Tammy Abraham

Despite playing for a struggling side in the Championship last season, one of the stand out players in England's second division was Tammy Abraham.

Leicester City and newly promoted Brighton had also registered their interest in the 19-year-old striker, who has made a major impact during his season-long loan at Bristol City this term.

The Daily Mail claims that Chelsea initially wanted the youngster to merge into the first team, but the close relationship between technical director Michael Emenalo and Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has changed the plan.

While Abraham was unable to find the net against the Magpies last term, the England U21 worldwide hit 26 goals in all competitions - informing clubs of the talent that the 19-year-old possesses.


Rafa Benitez is so keen to sign Tammy Abraham that he went and met the player on his wedding anniversary. Leicester City and Brighton and Hove Albion were linked with a move, but Abraham's move to St James' Park could be completed this weekend.

Abraham rightly received plenty of plaudits last season for his excellent season whilst on loan at Ashton Gate.

Forwards like Dwight Gayle, Christian Atsu and Matt Ritchie helped Newcastle secure the Championship title and promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt, and Aarons says the mood around the squad is good.
