Report – Newcastle Win The Race To Sign Tammy Abraham

The Telegraph and the Times are both reporting that Newcastle have won the battle to sign Tammy Abraham on loan for the season.

The 19 year-old Chelsea striker who was also considering a move on loan to Brighton for the season.

The Telegraph have reported  the youngster has finally decided to sign for Newcastle and will complete the paper work before the weekend.

Abraham was named yesterday in Aidy Boothroyd’s England U-21 squad for the European Championship finals to be held in Poland later this month and has been training at St George’s Park with the England team.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham coming n loan to Newcastle

If this news is accurate it would be a big boost for Rafa Benitez, who talked personally with the player at the England training grounds last week and it seems he has persuaded the youngster to join Newcastle for a season.

The 19-year-old was excellent in the Championship for Bristol City last season, scoring 26 goals in 50 games in all competitions, 23 of them in the Championship.

But the loan will have no option to buy at the end of the season and it is purely a loan for one season and Tammy will return to Chelsea next summer.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte then expects the lad to then fight for a first team place in the Chelsea team.

Abraham shows every sign that he can score goals in the Premier League and hopefully he can help Newcastle finish in the top half of the table next term on our reentry to the Premier League.

It now looks certain that either Daryl Murphy or Alexsandar Mitrovic will leave the club this summer and it will probably be Daryl.

Newcastle will pay Tammy’s £25K/week wages plus a loan fee which will be undisclosed.

This will allow Newcastle to delay buying a top striker outright for one year and it will help with the transfer funds this summer, so we can sign other players who are needed to strengthen the squad.

He will be a very good signing for the season for Newcastle – four fans in five think he will be a good signing for us.

    Happy enough with this signing – if true. Abraham definitely has potential and knows where the net is. Generally I do not like loans and in this case there appears to be no chance to buy him after the loan period.
    However in this transition period of playing again in the PL I have no complaints about one or two loanees.
    The transfer kitty will not be infinite.

    Without the option to buy I can’t see the positive in this. With loan fees and covering wages its going to be a very expensive 3rd choice. If he is higher than 3rd choice then we could well be in trouble.

    Would much prefer Armstrong given a role and the 3 ish million that TA will cost put to use elsewhere

    Agree with mr tuff. We need to remain pragmatic and a low cost striker loan like this is a good way of bolstering our goal scoring options without busting the bank. Money needs to be spent elsewhere bringing in better players . TA will be keen as mustard to impress in his first real go in the premier league so will not be slacking.
    We need to establish ourselves in the Prem this season. Then next season we should be better placed to attract top quality players having proved we have sorted ourselves out.

    I like Arma but hope he gets a decent Championship side loan this season. He’s not quite there yet, and it seems he hasn’t been helped too much by the Barnsley experience / the way they play hasn’t suited him.

    Still think we need a proven top division striker alongside Gayle and Abraham, but so far, so good.

    If I had a choice between Abraham and Arma theres only one winner and unfortunately it would’nt be Arma, good player but nowhere near prem standard right now. Really dont know why people are unhappy with bringing this kid in on loan, either way Rafa is going to bring in loan players and either way this kid is going on loan to a prem club so rather it be at the Toon to score for us than score against us. Any goals to help in our first season back is a help. An option to buy would make alot more sense to us but Chelsea arent selling this kid anytime soon.

    No problem at all with loans. Our priority as always is to do well next season. Anyone would choose half a team of loanees for a year and survive, compared to insisting on buying a whole team and flirting with relegation. It never stopped teams like West Brom loaning Lukaku.

    If the team does well, ok we lose Abraham next summer but other players will be keen to come in and replace him.

    You are indoctrinated into Geordie history, not just for “that goal” but for the way you acted on and off the pitch, a beast of a man who terrorized opposition attackers and a humble religious man who saw his gift as a way to help his family and friends when days were dark.
    May you Rest In Peace and go to the next place without any ill will or burdens.

    I reckon either Fulham or Sheffield Wed would be good for arma, get him back next season when Tammy has scored a few for us and Arma has 20+ for wherever he goes to.

    Maybe Fulham might take an on-loan Arma as part of a Cairney deal. Or then again, maybe not.
