Tammy Abraham: Swansea City to sign Chelsea striker on loan

Swansea City have agreed to sign striker Tammy Abraham on loan from Chelsea for the 2017-18 season.

The Swans have fought off competition from Newcastle and Brighton for the 19-year-old, who scored 23 goals in 40 appearances on loan at Championship side Bristol City in 2016-17.

Paperwork for the deal is expected to be completed on Wednesday, 21 June.

Abraham worked with Paul Clement when the Swans manager was a coach at Stamford Bridge.

Club chairman Huw Jenkins has said they will fight to keep Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alfie Mawson and Fernando Llorente.

The trio have been linked with moves.
