Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham says he will discuss his future with the club after England’s Under-21 Euro 2017 campaign.
Abraham spent a successful season on loan at Bristol City, scoring 23 goals in 41 Championship appearances, but still needs reassurances over playing time if he were to link up with Chelsea’s first-team squad in the future.
Newcastle are said to be interested in bringing the 19-year-old to St James’ Park and are close to securing a loan deal, but the striker will not make a decision on his future until after his England commitments.
“As far as I am aware, yeah,” he told Sky Sports regarding whether his future was still open.
“I haven’t spoken with Chelsea yet. I am focusing on this tournament so the discussions will happen after.
“I’m not too sure (about his future). Hopefully it will be in the Premier League.
“After this season I need to take myself to the next level. That’s the type of person I am, I always want to do better. I always want to do more. So going into the new season my aim will be to top this one.”
Abraham has won many admirers during his first full season but believes he needs to continue making a name for himself.
He added: “For me it was more about focusing on myself and trying to build up myself. The players at Chelsea are established in the Premier League and this was my first season. I was trying to build myself up and make a name for myself.”
