Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling has started his March for Men and is busy raising money for Prostate Cancer UK.
He was in Bristol yesterday where young Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham spent a season on loan at Bristol City last season and scored a whopping 26 goals in 50 total appearances.
Chelsea rate the young striker and it seems a toss up between Newcastle and Brighton as to which club Tammy will opt to go on loan to next season.
19 year-old Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham
Jeff weighed in with his opinions about Tammy in the Bristol Post – and he was asked if he thinks the 19 year-old is ready for the big step up to the Premier League:
“I really do, yeah.”
“When he came to Bristol City, friends of mine at Chelsea came to me and said of all our loanees, he’s the one who could make the grade at Stamford Bridge.”
“They felt he has the potential to be a Premier League player, and I certainly do as well.”
“The attraction is if you do go to Newcastle and you are a striker, and you do score goals, you are an absolute hero up there.”
“But Brighton’s a smashing club as well with good support too.” “They’ve got to go out and find somebody who will fill his boots.”
“Obviously, the loss of Tammy Abraham – that’s massive.”
It’s not really clear to us we are the favorites to sign this lad on loan because Brighton is so close to where the lad lives in Surrey, so he could get home very quickly.
And the likelihood is that he would be the number one striker next season at Brighton and that would not necessarily be the case at Newcastle.
Finally, Jeff Stelling is doing something very important and it’s great to see that.
He was on the second leg of his March for Men in aid of Prostate Cancer UK – to support Jeff’s marathon journey, you can go here.
It’s for a very worthy cause.
