Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham said he was ‘really excited’ after completing a season-long loan move to Swansea City
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham said he was ‘really excited’ after completing a season-long loan move to Swansea City.
On the same day that he put pen to paper on a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge, his temporary switch to the Swans was confirmed, as he teams up again with head coach Paul Clement.
‘I’m really excited. I enjoyed my time at Bristol City last season, playing regular first-team football and scoring goals. Hopefully I can do the same at Swansea,’
‘I watched Swansea a lot last season when they played Chelsea and on TV. I know it was a difficult season for them at times, but you could see that they always try and play nice football.
‘That was a major factor in me joining Swansea. When teams play good football it tends to create chances for the striker. Then it’s up to me to get myself in good positions and hopefully score some goals.’
Abraham already knows one of his new Swansea City team-mates, defender Alfie Mawson, who he played with recently during England’s under-21 European championship.
‘Alfie is a great lad and told me a hell of a lot about Swansea,’
‘He said it was a good club and a great place to get your head down, work hard and concentrate on your football. He said it would be a great move for my ongoing development.’
