As Newcastle United wait to seal Tammy Abraham’s signing, the forward would be wise to push the deal through.
Tammy Abraham had looked to be on the brink of a season-long loan move to Newcastle United last week, according to The Times.
The Chelsea forward enjoyed a 26-goal campaign with Bristol City last term and unsurprisingly has Premier League suitors this summer, with Brighton and Hove Albion also interested.
However, with Newcastle yet to confirm the deal, Abraham has now told the Daily Mail that he does not know where he will be playing his football next season.
And should hesitancy on the 19-year-old’s part be the cause of the delay, it seems a strange decision to make.
At St James’ Park, Abraham would be playing for one of the biggest clubs in the country that Chelsea do not currently consider a direct rival, giving him valuable experience of performing under pressure.
Rafa Benitez has been promised funds at Newcastle and should be building a side that are competitive in the top flight and able to create chances for a player like Abraham.
But the Chronicle report that Benitez wants to get business done prior to pre-season training, meaning that they could soon move on from Abraham if the move continues to stall.
That would be a huge missed opportunity for the England youth international and he would be wise to quickly sign up for a year on Tyneside.
