Rafa Benitez is back in for Tammy Abraham, and just like last summer, he is trying to get the 20-year-old Chelsea striker signed on loan for the season.
The news is in the Sun that we may be able to get Tammy this coming season – something we failed to do for last season.
Rafa thought his loan signing last summer was all tied up, but it seems we dropped the ball and he eventually went to Swansea, who were relegated and changed managers during the season.
But after Rafa’s brilliant handling of Abraham’s teammate Kenedy on loan this year Newcastle must have an excellent chance of getting the twice-capped England International for next season.
Tammy Abraham – on loan at Newcastle next season?
Tammy didn’t do so well at Swansea last year and scored only 8 goals and had 5 assists in 39 total appearances,
But he has speed and skill, and we expect Rafa to be able to bring the best out of him at Newcastle.
Rafa will also be trying to get an option to buy Abraham in the loan contract, and that’s something he tried to get in Kenedy’s deal but was not successful.
Rafa will bring one striker in permanently this summer and Tammy could become the second striker and that would be good news for Newcastle.

Jack Farish is currently studying for a Master’s degree in sport and exercise psychology at Northumbria University.
His thesis project looks at Premier League fans’ team identification – how well they support and identify with their team.
Jack has put together a relatively short questionnaire of team identification and satisfaction with life; it should take no longer than 10 minutes.
