Tammy Abraham To Play For Premier League Side Next Season
After his fine form for Bristol City last season, many tipped Tammy Abraham to make the step up to the Premier League for next term.
And although the young striker won't be featuring for Chelsea next term given that first-team opportunities are still likely to be slim, Abraham is to play Premier League football on loan next season.

According to Neil Moxley from The Mirror, Paul Clement and Swansea City have edged out several clubs to secure the temporary signing of the 19-year old.
The likes of Newcastle and Brighton were both keen on bolstering their attack with the addition of Abraham next season, having seen what he was all about when the two sides came up against Bristol City in the Championship last season.
But it is Swansea who have won the race, with Abraham signing on loan for next season.
The Chelsea youth product is currently with the England Under 21's in the Czech Republic for the Under 21 Euros and it's thought that he will have a break after the tournament concludes before joining up with The Swans for the upcoming campaign.
