Newcastle In Move For 19 Year-Old Striker With 23 Goals

There is a  report in the local press that Newcastle want 19 year-old Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham at Newcastle on loan for next season and we have been given permission to speak directly to the player.

So have the other promoted team (so far) from the Championship – Chris Hughton’s Brighton & Hove Albion.

Tammy Abraham in action for Bristol City last season

The Telegraph are reporting that Brighton are in the lead to sign the teenager, who scored 23 Championship goals while on loan at Bristol City last season.

Tammy in fact scored 26 goals in 50 total appearances for a struggling Bristol City side, who finished in 17th position last season and were struggling against relegation for a lot of last season.

Tammy has played for the England U18, U19 and U21 sides and stands 6ft 4ins tall and he looks a very good player in the making.

He joined Chelsea when he was 8 years old and has come through the Youth Academy at the London club and is one of Chelsea’s top teenagers at the club.

The deal will be a season-long loan deal with Chelsea expected to sign the young striker to a long term deal this summer with a big wage rise, so Blues manager Antonio Conte must really rate the youngster.

There will be no option to buy the player in the loan deal, with Chelsea believing Tammy will be ready to compete for a first-team place next summer.

Abraham was part of the Chelsea youth side who recorded back to back triumphs in both the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup in both 2015 and 2016.

Last year in the UEFA Youth League, Abraham scored eight goals in just nine matches, making him the tournament’s second highest goal scorer.

So this lad can certainly score the goals – and we need lots of those next season.

    If we can get this lad that would be immense, he’s already a good player and if anyone can help him fulfil his potential it’s Rafa.
    Wages might be a problem with these Chelsea kids though. I heard recently that Loftus-Cheek was on ÂŁ50-ÂŁ60K per week already and he’s not even anywhere near being a first team regular. Disgusting really.

    Toon Tammy
    Sounds like he should have his own verse in the Blaydon Races
    Wor Tammy
    Has a certain ring to it
    Even comes with his own chant
    “Tammy Tammy Abraham, Tammy ….Abraham ”

    Can’t see any reason to go to Brighton other than close to
    London .

    If he’s got potential and wants to step up he knows where to come to

    Just saw this player once, was very impressed, posted about it and was informed he’s a Chelsea player.
    Would be good, even on loan. Though I’m not sure that’s how you build teams. Wins, temporary success, yes.

    If we are after this lad it will come down to playing time for him and his parent club,they and him will want him playing regular….aye brighton being down south is a bonus for them…..if we were to sign him…would that mean to play alongside gayle or mitrro….or replace either of them?

    Pione Sisto at Celta Vigo has the ‘sadio mane’ about him. Tailor made for the EPL and would be perfect at LW in Rafas 4231

    I’m all for loan signings,but only if we have an option to buy at the end of it.We wont with this lad.Chelsea are said to be giving him a better contract before loan.

    Yeah if therre’s no option to buy at the end then I am put off about the idea. He is a great player in the making though. Sadly he won’t be a permanent one and we will be developing him and then he goes off to Chelsea and we’re a stiker less again. Would like him as cover but neither him nor Chelsea will have that I think.

    Would be awesome to have Tammy at the Toon. Need to have an option to buy, really.

    What’s the point in borrowing a 19 year old if there’s no option to buy. Such a deal’s very much in Chelsea’s favour in that they could see how he performs in the Prem when we’re paying his wages.

    And he’d be happier at Brighton cos he’d be closer to home and a short train ride away from his mammy.

    No, this should be a non-starter.

    Chelsea want another Club to develop and mature a Youth player and would then have him return to go straight into their First team! No point in a Loan without an option to buy!

    I tend to agree with the principle of not signing players on loan without an option to buy
    IF he sets the PL alight and scores regularly, and
    He helps us improve as a team, and
    MAYBE he gets to like playing for us, and
    with PL money at the end of the season,
    maybe we could afford him.
    If at the end of the season,he has become
    a megastar who could make Chelski’s 1st
    team, then we don’t have a chance.

    IF he DOESN’T set the PL alight, but does
    fairly well, Chelsea may then sell him to us.
