Nigeria born attacker Tammy Abraham says he’s doesn’t know where he will be playing his Club football next season.


The 21-year-old helped Aston Villa gain promotion back to the English Premier League after scoring 26 goals in the 2018-19 campaign following a loan from Chelsea.

Abraham has not hidden his intentions of being a regular at parent club Chelsea, but he’s aware that the Club rarely gives youths the chance to impress.

“If Chelsea says they need me there, I will put my 100 per cent in.
“I am still young, I am still improving. The aim is to be at the highest level and playing the best football.

“A team like Chelsea is always difficult because they have got world-class players.
“It is always going to be difficult to bring in youngsters and bring in people like myself – it is a big role. But for me, it is about believing in myself and just keep doing what I do.”
Abraham also opened up on his failure to secure a Premier League move last summer and again during the winter transfer window.

He added: “It looked like I was going to Wolves [in January].
“I think certain situations happened with the FA, something about playing for three teams in one year or something like that… but the coach spoke to me he said: ‘Listen, stay here, we believe in you, the boys believe in you, the fans believe in you and we’ll get promoted’. I am glad I did.
“It wasn’t my first choice to come to the Championship, but I don’t look back on it [badly]. It has been a fantastic year for me and the boys as well, and to clinch it off we got promoted.”
With Villa now back in the Premier League, the attacker admits he might be tempted to return to the Club for the third time.

“I love being here. It is a massive club. It is an honour to wear the badge, so I am proud,” he said.

“I just need to enjoy my night with the boys before I think about the future. I have got the [U21] Euros coming up as well so I have to focus on that.
“You can never say never. You never know what could happen.”
