Newcastle United fans react as Hull City threaten to scupper Tammy Abraham hopes

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is no longer welcome at Newcastle United, at least in the eyes of a number of supporters.

There are few fans with as much pride in their hearts as those who make the trip to St. James’ Park on a fortnightly basis. Therefore, it is little surprise that a number of Newcastle United supporters are starting to lose their patience with Tammy Abraham.

After plundering 23 goals on loan at Bristol City last season, almost single handedly keeping the Robins in the division and confirming his status as England’s most exciting young striker, the Chelsea-owned 19-year-old has been linked with countless clubs in need of a natural-born goal-scorer.

However, it appeared that Newcastle had a deal in the bag. Yet, the alarm bells are starting to ring.

According to the Daily Mail, the Magpies, as well as rival suitors Brighton, have been stunned to learn that they will have to pay £1 million to cover signing-on fees for the player, his family and his agent.

Furthermore, Newcastle may have to pay a weekly wage of £50,000 for a player who has not made a single Premier League start. The demands for a lucrative goal bonus cast further doubt on Abraham making the move to St. James’ Park this summer.

And, just to further complicate matters, Chelsea are now considering sending Abraham to Hull City despite making clear that they wanted the teenager to continue his development in the Premier League, The Sun reports.

Roman Abramovich’s close friendship with Tigers boss Leonid Slutsky is coming in fairly useful at the KCom Stadium.

Needless to say, Newcastle supporters are now keen to look elsewhere.
