Brighton and Newcastle granted Tammy Abraham talks

Newcastle have already made one signing this summer, bringing in Christian Atsu from Chelsea on a permanent deal.

And The Daily Telegraph today report that Newcastle have been given permission, along with Brighton and Hove Albion, to talk to Tammy Abraham, another of the club's players.

Chelsea plan to secure the England Under-21 worldwide to a new long-term deal and sending him out on loan before trying to integrate Abraham into what is now a loaded first-team squad at Stamford Bridge.

The 19-year-old's 26 goals in all competitions have caught the attention of Premier League new boys Brighton and Newcastle United.

Though Abraham is not yet ready for a spot in our first team squad, another year on loan while keeping his great goalscoring record would quickly change the perspective for the better. "It's easy to see why - in addition to his scoring production, Abraham is a physical specimen, standing 6'4" with more pace than is usually expected of someone his size.

But the Chilean forward wasn't the subject of the tabloid's update in the red-top; instead focus was placed on Chelsea's young forward Tammy Abraham, who starred in the Championship on loan at Bristol City this season.

And Newcastle are hopeful of bringing Abraham to St. James' Park.
