Ian Holloway suggested on the Drive show on talkSPORT on Friday evening (5:22pm, February 15, 2019) that he hopes that Tammy Abraham returns to Chelsea following his loan spell at Aston Villa.

Abraham joined Villa in the Championship on a season-long loan deal from Premier League club Chelsea in the summer of 2018.

The 21-year-old striker has been a superb signing for the Villans and is playing well for Dean Smith’s side at the moment.

 

The England international striker has made 26 starts in the Championship for Villa so far this season, scoring 20 goals and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.

Former Queens Park Rangers manager Holloway believes that Chelsea should have recalled Abraham in the January transfer window, and hopes that the striker goes back to Chelsea next season.

Holloway said about Abraham on the Drive show on talkSPORT on Friday evening (5:22pm, February 15, 2019): “I am fuming at Chelsea. I would have brought him back and put him in my team.”

“Tammy Abraham, let's hope he plays for Chelsea next year,” added Holloway.

Return to Chelsea

Abraham is a very good striker who has proved himself in the Championship, and the 21-year-old does deserve a chance at Chelsea.

It is going to be tough for the England international to break into the Blues’ first team, but the youngster striker should be given the chance to at least try to impress a Stamford Bridge.
