Newcastle United have been given permission to speak to Tammy Abraham according to reports this morning.

The 19 year old striker looks certain to go out on loan once again this upcoming season and The Telegraph say that Newcastle have been given the green light by Chelsea to talk to the player about spending a season on Tyneside.

The newspaper reports that fellow promotion side Brighton have also expressed an interest and been given permission to speak to the player.

Joining Bristol City on a temporary basis last summer, Tammy Abraham showed astonishing form for a then 18 year old.

Despite playing for a team battling relegation for much of the season, the on-loan forward scored a total of 26 goals for the second tier team.

This included an impressive 23 goals in only 40 Championship starts.

The striker has represented England at Under 19 and Under 21 levels.

Not surprisingly, Abraham won Bristol City’s player of the year, young player of the year, and top goalscorer awards.

The 6ft 4 striker looks to have a big future ahead of him but will that include spending 2017/18 at St James Park?

The club has already made clear that loan deals will form part of Rafa Benitez’ strategy this summer as Newcastle return to the Premier League.

The Christian Atsu loan and then permanent move this week, maybe suggest that the United boss remains on good terms with a club where he won the Europa League and helped them qualify for the Champions League in his brief spell there.

Tammy Abraham looks as though he would definitely be an asset to Newcastle next season, so hopefully a bit of substance in this transfer link as compared to a lot of the deadbeats NUFC have so far been claimed to have an interest in.

  • Rich Lawson

    Huge potential and no initial transfer fee (is there an option to buy ?).Get him in now Rafa !

  • Jezza

    This is a potential transfer I could get quite excited about.

    • Rich Lawson

      Wouldn’t it be great,this boy could be an absaloute destroyer in the prem’.

  • Toon fan

    Compared to some players links in the press, much better

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    Ask for Batshuayi as well, shy bairns get nowt. i`ve also heard Kurt Zouma may be loaned out for at least 6 months
    we need quality & the Chelsea players are just that

    • Rich Lawson

      Love it,but how many do the FA let us take from one club ?

      • MichaelMaximusMoose

        i don`t know, but it`ll be 2 or 3

  • Paul Patterson

    What would it cost to get him outright?

  • Mrkgw

    Would be good only with an option to buy. Otherwise, might as well develop your own younger players.

    • Cuh736

      Might as well make him one of our young players

  • tinstar101

    why the hell would we want to take a 19 un-proven PL striker on-loan when we already have our own in the team? We should be looking at Armstrong before looking at this lad.

    • Rich Lawson

      Arma deserves a chance in the pre seasons but he didn’t set the world alight with Barnsley. This bloke murded the division scoring for Bristol City who only just stayed up ?

      • Down Under Mag

        Agreed, Arma should have kicked on by now and through whoever’s fault he hasn’t…I think loaning him out to a top-half Championship side next season is on the cards to be honest and if he doesn’t cut it there then I suspect he will be allowed to leave. Unfortunately he has a bit of Chopra about him – loands of potential and pressure and failing to live up to the hype and getting dagerously old to be “breaking in” to the first team selections…hopefully he comes good as I like what i’ve seen of him but so many unknowns about starting him in the top flight.

  • Al Devon

    Rafa will need to offer the kid serious game time to get him. He wont come and play second fiddle to Gayle.

  • Jimblag23

    This would be great, I’d prefer it if we were actually buying him though.
    If he’s not Prem level, we won’t benefit much. If he destroys the division, Chelsea will want him back or will sell him for £20m.
    I wish Chelsea were dumb enough to sell him to us for £5m so we could sell him back to the championship if he doesn’t cut the PL mustard (which I’m sure he will)

  • Toon fan

    He is a moocher. The video of his goals were all scored in the 6 yard box.

    • Vodkamagpie

      Agree with you, all his goals are tap ins, and not even good ones at that, goalkeepers are generally poor in the championship

    • Cuh736

      So what? Gayle’s goals were mostly tap ins

      • Toon fan

        I think you need to have a look at his goals again. He scored 9 from in the six yard box and not all of them were simple tap ins.

  • John Oneil

    Yes please… goals mean wins and points.
    Hope it’s with a buy at end of season price!

  • Albert Stubbins

    Jezza- if you’re reading- this is the lad I was talking about last season. Ive seen him four or five times and reckon he would be a great addition most probably on loan- has real pace and an eye for goal ala another Bristol City loan player of old- a certain Andy Cole. He would be stupid money for a 19 year old which may scupper the deal like- ha

  • Lhc

    Aye there’s the nufc i know!
    With this type of signing.

  • Kev-82

    Would be decent addition but I still feel we’d need another striker (ideally Ihenacho or Batshuayi)

  • Albert Stubbins

    Getting a proven striker in is going to be hardest and most divisive acquisition of the summer.

  • Toon fan

    Abraham on loan and Gray

  • HarryHype59

    I hope this is true!

  • Lhc

    Typical nufc signing!! This is more like the nufc I know!!

  • MadMag83

    He’ll probably end up at Brighton
