Abraham 'Really Excited' After Completing Swansea City Move

Talented Chelsea FC youngster Tammy Abraham has just signed a new five-year deal with the Blues.

The 19-year-old spent last season at Championship side Bristol City and scored 26 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, form he hopes to replicate at Swansea.

Abraham knows Swansea manager Paul Clement from his time on the coaching staff at Stamford Bridge.

Swansea City have officially confirmed the loan signing of Chelsea starlet Tammy Abraham ahead of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign.

"That was a major factor in me joining Swansea".

'I watched Swansea a lot last season when they played Chelsea and on TV.

"Alfie is a great lad and told me a hell of a lot about Swansea, " Abraham said.

In an interview published on Tuesday, Chelsea head of youth development Neil Bath said: 'Realistically, to break into a first team like ours you need to have played 150 to 200 games at senior level.

Mesa's pass-completion rate of 91.4 per cent was ranked as the fourth highest in LaLiga last season. Llorente has been linked with a move to none other than Chelsea, while Baston looks set to join Malaga on loan.

And he was named Bristol City's Young Player of the Year and Player of the Year for his crucial goals last term.

Abraham netted 25 times in the second tier for Bristol City, leading to a number of clubs reportedly showing an interest in taking him on a temporary basis, including newly-promoted duo Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion.
