Fulham have turned West London into a family affair by signing Chelsea hot prospect Tammy Abraham's younger brother Timmy Abraham from Charlton Athletic, as reported by Get West London.

Like his brother Tammy, Timmy is also a striker and the 15-year-old was with Charlton Athletic for six years before deciding to make the switch across London to the Whites, having impressed in a trial for the Championship play-off semi finalists.

Abraham Snr, aged just 19, had a phenomenal year on loan at Bristol City in the Championship, scoring 26 in 48 games in all competitions, with 23 of those coming in the league despite his relative inexperience and the fact he was playing for a relegation threatened side. 

While some Fulham fans may be hoping that signing his brother could lead to them taking pole position in the race to sign Abraham on loan next season, it seems likely that he will be joining one of the newly promoted Premier League sides in Newcastle United or Brighton and Hove Albion, as reported by the Telegraph.

However, if Timmy turns out to be half as good as Tammy, then Fulham have an extremely bright prospect on their hands, and their fans will be keen to watch the youngster develop at Craven Cottage in the coming years.

Fulham finished the Championship season in sixth place under Slavisa Jokanovic's stewardship, losing 2-1 to Readin on aggregate in the play-off semi-finals, and will be hoping to go one step further next campaign.
