Tammy Abraham has joined Swansea on a season-long loan deal after signing a new five-year contract with Chelsea.

Former Chelsea development squad coach Adi Viveash has hailed Abraham’s attitude and believes the youngster would go on to be one of the best.

“What I also noticed is that over the course of the season at Bristol City he became quite a dominant voice as well. He’s not afraid to encourage someone in order to get his team going. His leadership qualities have definitely developed in senior football,” he told Sky Sports.

“Tammy is a very, very strong character. He believes that he is the best and, to be fair to him, his record shows that he has an excellent chance of being a top player. He believes he will get to the top and he is prepared to work very hard in order to get there. He loves scoring goals and he is a winner.”

Viveash then revealed how Abraham has worked on his defensive and physical aspect of his game.

“When he was being bullied by 30-year-old Championship centre-halves who are good players, he just got up, got on with it and scored,” Viveash added. “So he’s really improved on that side of the game. He works very hard for the team.”
