Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has been a good loan player for Aston Villa as he helped Villa return to the top-flight for the first time since 2016 on Monday afternoon.

Villa recorded a massive 2-1 win over Derby County at Wembley with Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn on the scoresheet for Villa.

Although Abraham was unable to get on the scoresheet in the final, he has been a regular goalscorer for Villa this season and has impressed in his season-long loan deal with the Villans, scoring 26 goals.

The 21-year-old’s loan deal with Villa will come to an end this week, and when asked in the immediate aftermath to his side’s victory whether he will be at Villa Park next season, the 21-year-old refused to rule anything out.

“You can never say never, never say never,” Abraham said.

“First of all, I’ve got to enjoy it with the boys tonight. You can never say never, we will see what god has planned for me.

“I can’t, I can’t get my words out right now. This is what football is made for.

“We worked so hard the whole season, one last game, one last push. Derby are a great side, give them credit. They kept us going to the last minute.

“But, we’re going up.”

Abraham revealed some months ago that his aim is to play for Chelsea.

“That’s the aim going into next season,” Abraham told Sky Sports News. “As a young kid, I’ve always believed I will play for Chelsea. I always believe that.

“I think I have the ability to. I just have to, when I get the opportunity, grab it with two hands.”

Will the youngster be given a chance at Stamford Bridge next season?
