DONE DEAL: Aston Villa sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham

Aston Villa have signed Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham on a season-long loan.

Abraham, 20, drops down to the Championship in his quest for regular first-team football.

Maurizio Sarri had been open to keeping the young hitman at Stamford Bridge.

However, with both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud ahead of him in the pecking order, and having not made the bench for the Blues' opening three Premier League matches this season, he has elected to move to Villa Park.

Abraham returns to the Championship having scored 23 times in 41 games for Bristol City during the 2016-17 season.
