Chelsea striker Abraham would be willing to join Wolves - but not on-loan

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham would be willing to join Wolves this month - but only in a permanent deal.

The Daily Mail says Abraham has boosted Aston Villa by turning down a loan move to Wolves to stay at the Championship club.

The 21-year-old, who has hit 16 goals on loan from Chelsea, missed training on Monday as a move to Wolves developed. But Abraham returned to tell team-mates he was staying.

The striker appeared to change his mind after realising Chelsea were not prepared to sell him to Wolves. He did not wish to agree to another loan.

Wolves have not given up hope of landing Abraham, but their only chance is if Chelsea's stance changes.

Abraham would have stood to increase his salary by moving to Wolves for the rest of the season but has decided to stay and help Villa win promotion. However, he would be open to the prospect of a permanent switch in this window, something teams in the Premier League would be willing to explore.
