A youngster moves out of the side, Chelsea is clearly clearing their wage piles. The 20-year-old forward of Stamford Bridge has joined Championship side Aston Villa on a season-long loan deal. Tammy Abraham is sealed off for a move to Villa in the last minute deadline day negotiation. The forward has not been seen in any of three Premier League squads this season for Chelsea. He had just 21 minutes of their Community Shield defeat by Manchester City earlier in August. Tammy scored five times in his 31 Premier League games for Swansea City last season. This impressive performance also earned him two England caps.
The forward spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan in the Championship with Bristol City. He scored 26 goals in his debut season. Tammy believes they Aston Villa deserve to be in the Premier League and he is there to help them achieve that. After joining the Premiership club, the forward has said that Villa are a big club that belongs in the Premier League and he is there to help them achieve that. It has been always the lack of playing times what triggered him to choose a path outside the Stamford Bridge and he said that at this stage of his career, he needs games and Villa is a great place for him to go and showcase his talent. The young guy also expressed how excited he is after joining the new club and can’t wait to have his debut.
Abraham joins Villa as their fifth loan signing of the busy summer. Before him, it was Everton winger Yannick Bolasie, Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe, Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Andre Moreira and Lille forward Anwar El Ghazi who joined the Premiership club in the Steve Bruce’s squad.
The forward stayed tuned with Chelsea beyond the Premier League transfer deadline of Aug. It was unlikely to head coach Maurizio Sarri to choose Tammy over Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud and the youngster was destined to go seeking his playing minutes. Sarri stayed politically correct in the press conference saying that it is up to him. The former Napoli manager also said that he is not able to guarantee him (Tammy) a spot at the moment, but if he wanted to remain, he (Sarri) would feel really very happy. Sarri also said that Tammy is very young for a striker, and has huge spectra to improve more. Chelsea is now in the second position after the fourth game week with twelve points. The Sarri ball is rolling hard and the new keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is doing some extraordinary job. The Blues beat Bournemouth yesterday by 2-0 maintaining another clean sheet. Pedro and Hazard scored for the former league champions. Chelsea will face Cardiff City next in their home game. On the other hand, Liverpool are at the top of the league position with same points of Chelsea but with greater goal difference. Liverpool have been sensational so far this season with their front trio unleashing the best of themselves.
