Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham sealed a Loan move to Championship side, Aston Villa on 31st August in order to get some regular game time. Abraham didn’t feature in any of Chelsea’s first 3 Premier League games and Manager Maurizio Sarri said that he couldn’t guarantee that the youngster would get a spot, “I am not able to guarantee him a spot at the moment. But if he wants to remain I am very happy with him. He is very young for a striker. He can improve more. It is up to him.” The 20-Year-Old, after all, decided to switch to Villa, which should give him the Starting minutes that he needs to improve.

Tammy Abraham is no stranger to Chelsea’s infamous Loan System and the Striker spoke about how the move went through, “This is something I was aware of from the beginning. I was part of the Chelsea setup so was looking to focus on Chelsea. I recently received a call saying if I wanted to find a team, I have to go out if I want to play games. That’s what I did, and for me, Aston Villa is a Premier League side, they deserve to be in the Premier League. I’m here to do my best, score some goals and hopefully get them back to where they need to be.”
Abraham seemed positive about the upcoming Season, “It will be tough. We’ve got a good team, a good manager, and great fans. Hopefully, when I get started I can help them as much as possible and clinch promotion.”
The Chelsea Loanee had even broken into Gareth Southgate’s England Squad after a promising start with Swansea last Season. Many are calling this move a step backward as Abraham is moving from the Premier League to the Championship. Only time will tell whether this was the right move for the youngster or not.
