Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham provides update on future following Aston Villa’s promotion

Chelsea-owned striker Tammy Abraham has this evening discussed the possibility of remaining at the club next season, as well as a potential return to Aston Villa.

21-year-old hitman Abraham has been on Chelsea’s books for 15 years now, having joined the club as a youngster in 2004.

However, since first breaking into the senior setup of the capital giants in 2016 at the tender age of 18, Abraham has since been farmed out on a trio of loans, to Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa respectively.

The twice-capped English international enjoyed his second prolific stint in the Championship this past season, notching 26 goals with Villa to add to the 23 he managed with Bristol in 2017/18.

Crucially this time around, though, Abraham’s goals contributed towards a truly-special campaign for Villa.

Victory over Derby County in the Championship playoff final yesterday afternoon saw Dean Smith’s men secure a return to the Premier League for next season.

‘If Chelsea say they need me…’

As such, on the back of yet another sparkling loan spell, questions have already begun to circulate regarding Abraham’s future.

With Chelsea having failed to secure a consistent goal-scoring option since Diego Costa’s departure from the club, murmurs have emerged suggesting that Abraham could yet be given a chance to shine at Stamford Bridge next season.

And, speaking in an interview this evening, the  youngster refused to rule out such a possibility:

‘If Chelsea say they need me there, I will put my 100 per cent in.’

‘I am still young, I am still improving. The aim is to be at the highest level and playing the best football.’

‘A team like Chelsea is always difficult because they have got world-class players.’

‘It is always going to be difficult to bring in youngsters and bring in people like myself – it is a big role. But for me, it is about believing in myself and just keep doing what I do.’

Villa return?

Another option for Abraham would be to return to Villa Park, either to gain Premier League experience as part of another loan, or on a permanent transfer.

And this is also a route which the hitman appears open to:

‘I love being here. It is a massive club. It is an honour to wear the badge, so I am proud.’

‘I just need to enjoy my night with the boys before I think about the future. I have got the [U21] Euros coming up as well so I have to focus on that.’

‘You can never say never. You never know what could happen.’
