The striker joined Aston Villa on a season long loan
Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has joined Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season on the transfer deadline day. He decided to leave as Maurizio Sarri couldn’t guarantee him the minutes he had hoped for.
The 20 year old came through the academy ranks of the Blues and made his senior debut for the club back in 2016. However, he was loaned to the championship side Bristol city, where he impressed and scored 23 goals in 41 championship appearances.
He was again loaned to Swansea City last season, where he scored 5 goals in 31 appearances. But couldn’t stop them from getting relegated.
The player was also called into the Senior England squad last year but couldn’t get a place in this year’s World Cup.
The England International returned at Stamford Bridge this summer and was expecting a place in the squad. But his path was blocked as the club already have Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.
However, Abraham has revealed he snubbed lot of teams as he was assured that he will get regular game time this season. But he was made aware later that he won’t be getting resulting in deadline day move.
He told Villa’s official website: “It started off from the end of last season where Chelsea did say I’d be involved in their team and squad.
“That’s the reason why I said no to a lot of teams that came from abroad and the Premier League as well, but towards the end, I found that I need to play games and need to play football, and looking at a team like Aston Villa, who I believe should be in the Premier League, it’s a great chance for me to come out and showcase myself here.
“It’s a situation where I want to be in a team where I believe strongly in the team and just be in a good environment enjoying myself again.
“Hopefully that can be this place and I can take them to the Premier League.”
