Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham Joins Swansea on Loan
Swansea City has officially confirmed the loan signing of Chelsea starlet Tammy Abraham, who scored 26 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions at Championship side Bristol City.
The 19-year-old penned a new long-term contract with his parent club Chelsea that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2022.

“I’m really excited. I enjoyed my time at Bristol City last season, playing regular first-team football and scoring goals. Hopefully, can do the same at Swansea,” he told the club’s official website.
“I watched Swansea a lot last season when they played Chelsea and on TV. I know it was a difficult season for them at times, but you could see that they always try and play nice football.
“That was a major factor in me joining Swansea. When teams play good football it tends to create chances for the striker. Then it’s up to me to get myself in good positions and hopefully score some goals.”
Abraham represented England alongside Swansea defender Alfie Mawson at the European Under-21 Championship in Poland and received a positive review from his international team-mate.
“Alfie is a great lad and told me a hell of a lot about Swansea,” said Abraham. “He said it was a good club and a great place to get your head down, work hard and concentrate on your football. He said it would be a great move for my ongoing development.”
