Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has joined Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season.

It was expected that the 20-year-old will be given a chance to fight for a shirt under Maurizio Sarri and was even linked with Ligue 1 side Bordeaux, but he has ended up signing for Championship side, Aston Villa.

“I’m excited for this new chapter,” the striker told Villa’s official website.

“Aston Villa are a big club that belongs in the Premier League and I’m here to help them achieve that.

“At this stage of my career, I need games and this is a great place for me to come and showcase my talent. I can’t wait to get started.”

Tammy Abraham is still highly rated at Chelsea and excelled two seasons ago in the Championship, scoring 23 goals in 41 Championship appearances on loan at Bristol City in 2016-17.
