Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has signed a new five-year deal with Chelsea and the 19-year-old who took the Championship by storm last season while as a Bristol City player will now join fellow Premier League side Swansea City on a season-long loan as he continues his development.

He scored 26 times in all competitions, prompting interest from the likes of Swansea, Newcastle and Brighton. But he eventually settled for Paul Clement’s Swansea.

Abraham has been part of the Chelsea Academy since Under-8s and his goals played a pivotal part in ensuring we won back-to-back FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League trophies in 2014/15 and 2015/16.

He was handed his Chelsea first team debut in a Premier League away game against Liverpool as the 2015/16 season drew to a close, and also featured in our following match against Leicester City.

The deal is rumoured to be worth around £50,000 per week.
