The Sun is reporting today that Newcastle’s move to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham could be in danger as Hull City look to seemingly hijack the deal.
Earlier this month we were hot favorites to sign the player but the deal has stalled, probably because his agent is waiting for new improved offers (for himself) coming in before he OKs any move.
Such is the way transfers work these days, with the agents making massive money for themselves and controlling the deals and that is a huge danger to the game in England.
New Hull City manager – Leonid Slutsky
The Sun’s report is that new Hull manager Leonid Slutsky is said to be the key to any deal for Tammy.
He’s a 45 year-old Russian and said to be a good friend of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Slutsky thinks he can get a deal done with the Chelsea owner for young Abraham.
But Tammy has already spent a full season in the Championship with Bristol City last season and scored a massive 26 goals in 50 appearances.
Surely Chelsea now want him to have a season in the Premier League where he will start lots of games.
Rafa Benitez is said to have promised Chelsea manager Antonio Conte that’s what he will get at Newcastle United.
So it may be a nice story, but for the good of Tammy Abraham it makes absolutely no football sense at all.
But with his agent delaying any move until at least next month, these are the types of (daft) stories we will see about Abraham – all kinds of clubs from all over the place coming in to presumably hijack the Newcastle deal.
If this keeps going on like this, it may be better for Newcastle to start looking elsewhere and not be jerked around by his agent.

All donations go to Cancer Research UK.
Emma’s partner Danny lost a work colleague a couple of years ago to cancer and to had to watch the effects chemotherapy had on his body and it was heart wrenching to him as his friend had terminal cancer, but doggedly kept coming to work and plodding along.
Sadly he died in hospital and Emma’s auntie also had breast cancer but luckily came through it and was giving the all clear in the end.
So the two ladies are doing a great thing in raising funds to fight this disease and there are new treatments being developed all the time.
