With the transfer window, for EPL clubs and Europe slamming shut yesterday, Chelsea have confirmed that their young striker, Tammy Abraham, has gone out on loan.
Abraham, 20-years-of-age, has dropped down into the Championship to play for Aston Villa until the end of the season.
For Abraham, it will be this third consecutive season on loan, having previously spent season-long loan spells at both Bristol City and Swansea with varying degrees of success.
However, it appears that Tammy was unsure as to whether dropping down into the Championship would be beneficial to a player who broke onto the international scene, with England, last season.
But, according to the news source, the Express and Star, Tammy was convinced it would be a good move by the Chelsea legend that is John Terry and the highly rated Aston Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish.
Talking about the move, Tammy is quoted by our source as having remarked;
“Villa are a big club that belongs in the Premier League and I’m here to help them achieve that.
“At this stage of my career, I need games and this is a great place for me to come and showcase my talent. I can’t wait to get started.”
However, the loan move presents us with a huge question, is it a retrospective step dropping into the Championship after playing in the Premier League?
Some may suggest it is, but surely young Tammy will benefit far more from laying regularly in the Championship than he would by making the odd appearance for Chelsea in the domestic cups and the Europa League.
There’s also the possibility that Tammy will get amongst the goals for Aston Villa and, in turn, see his confidence soar.
Our view, at Vital Chelsea, is that it is a positive move for Tammy and we’ll be keeping a close eye on how he performs, possibly starting against Sheffield United today.
Good luck Tammy from all at Vital Chelsea.
