Premier League champions Chelsea have secured the future of England Under-21 striker Tammy Abraham on a five-year contract and confirmed that he will spend the season on loan at Swansea.

The 19-year-old was part of the Young Lions team that reached the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championship, having impressed on loan at Bristol City in the Championship last term.

Abraham is set to join up with two former Chelsea figures at Swansea in manager Paul Clement, a former Blues coach, and his No2 Claude Makelele, who spent five years at Stamford Bridge as a player.

Leicester City, meanwhile, are set to make their second major signing of the summer after striking a £12m deal with Sevilla for 29-year-old midfielder Vicente Iborra.

An agreement for the Spaniard, who played for Sevilla against the Foxes in the Champions League last season, follows the £17m signing of defender harry Maguire from Hull City.

Promoted Huddersfield have spent £11m on winger Thomas Ince from Derby, while fellow top-flight newcomers Newcastle have signed French defender Florian Lejeune from Spanish side Eibar for around £9m.

Burnley are understood to have failed with an £8m offer for Nottingham Forest forward Britt Assombalonga, amid uncertainty over the future of Clarets striker Andre Gray.
