Swansea have signed Chelsea’s England Under-21 striker Tammy Abraham on a season-long loan.

Abraham, who earlier announced on Twitter that he had signed a five-year deal with his parent club, joins Swansea after the Welsh club beat fellow Premier League clubs Brighton and Newcastle to his signature.

Swansea announced the expected move on their official website, saying Abraham will link up with his new team-mates during the club’s tour of the United States later this month.

England under-21 striker Tammy Abraham says he has signed a five-year contract with Chelsea prior to his anticipated season-long loan to Swansea.

Abraham, who scored 26 goals on loan at Championship Bristol City last season, announced his new Chelsea deal before deleting the tweet.

He had written: “Happy to sign a new 5 year contract with @ChelseaFC.”
