Aston Villa fans react to Tammy Abraham comments

Tammy Abraham confirmed that his priority was to break into Chelsea's first team next season, rather than re-sign for Aston Villa.

The 21-year-old was a revelation during a season-long loan at Aston Villa last season, netting 25 goals in helping Dean Smith's side win Premier League promotion.

But Abraham admitted to Sky Sports today that he intends to stay with his parent club in West London.

And it looks like the comments haven't gone down well with many-a-Villa fan, some of whom would rather that he doesn't return to Bodymoor Heath this summer.

 

Signing up somebody else might not be such a bad idea by Aston Villa boss Smith.

After all, Abraham - valued at £25 million [The Daily Mail] - didn't exactly set the Premier League alight during his last stint in the top flight.

He managed only five goals in 33 games for Swansea City during the 2017-18 campaign, and couldn't help the South-Welsh club avoid relegation.

Yes, Abraham is older and a bit more experienced now, but the Villans shouldn't be hanging their survival hopes on him doing the business.
