Newcastle given permission to speak to Tammy Abraham – Reports
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.
