Chelsea Chairman Backs Transfer Ban After Tammy Abraham Named POTY

Chelsea chairman, Bruce Buck joked that all London clubs should be dealt a transfer ban after the favourable consequences suffered this season.

Tammy Abraham bagged both Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards at the London Football Awards.

He is a product of the infamous Cobham academy, scoring 13 goals in 25 Premier League games this season. Abraham has not only broken out as a quality forward, he is also likely to make it into Gareth Southgate’s squad for the European Championship.

Otherwise, Chelsea have finally seen the emergence of several youth talents into the first time, all thanks to Frank Lampard. For years, fans have witnessed the club’s youth products either sold off or sent on an endless loan cycle, eventually fading off the radar. Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Reece James and Billy Gilmour have impressed many.

Gilmour’s performance in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Liverpool earned him the Man of the Match award. He has brought in comparisons to former Chelsea midfield general, Cesc Fabregas.

Bruce Buck said at the ceremony, “The nominees show a transfer ban is a very good thing. In fact, I recommend it to all of the London clubs.”
