Chelsea will loan highly-rated teen striker Tammy Abraham to Premier League side Swansea City, after he shone in the Championship for Bristol City last season.

The 19-year-old scored 26 goals in 48 games for the Robins last season to earn a spot in Aidy Boothroyd's England under-21 squad for this summer's European Championship.

Following his successful season with Bristol City, Abraham is believed to have been highly sought after by a number of Premier League clubs.

Swansea have won the race for his signature and the Camberwell-born goal-scorer will join former Chelsea coach Paul Clement in Wales on a one-year loan deal.

Swans manager Clement worked with Abraham while a youth coach at Stamford Bridge, where he eventually became Carlo Ancelotti's assistant.

Abraham has been with Chelsea since the age of eight and was one of the stars of a strong academy team that won the 2015 Uefa Youth League and the 2016 FA Youth Cup.

In 98 matches for Chelsea's various development sides, he netted 74 goals.
