Aston Villa target Abraham wants to stay and fight for Chelsea place

Tammy Abraham wants to stay and fight for a place at Chelsea.

The Mirror says Abraham is poised to reject a loan move to Aston Villa — and fight for his place at Chelsea.

The 20-year-old England international striker has been farmed out for the past two seasons, and is in two minds about whether to accept an offer from Villa boss Steve Bruce.

Part of Abraham's thinking is that he does not want to drop back into the Championship after spending last term in the Premier League at Swansea.

Abraham has already tasted life in the second tier with Bristol City in 2016-17, and does not think the switch will advance his career.

Villa have been in touch with Chelsea over the forward, who was reportedly the subject of a deadline-day £25million offer from top-flight Tottenham.
