Swansea City to sign Tammy Abraham on season-long loan from Chelsea

• Brighton and Newcastle had been interested in similar loan deal
• Abraham’s arrival not expected to impact Fernando Llorente’s future

Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham has agreed to join Swansea City on loan next season, with the striker’s agent finalising details for a move that will see the 19-year-old link up with his former youth-team manager Paul Clement.

Abraham, who is set to lead the line for England on Thursday against Poland in their final group stage match at the European Under-21 Championship, was keen to test himself in the Premier League after scoring 23 league goals on loan at Bristol City last season.

Alfie Mawson: ‘I took loads of England kit home. Mum and dad wear it all the time’

The defender remains grounded – he was spotted at a car boot sale the morning after he stifled Romelu Lukaku – despite preparing for the Under-21 Euros months after his Swansea debut

It was a Sunday early in May and most Premier League footballers were probably fast asleep when Alfie Mawson’s alarm went off at 7am, telling him it was time to get out of bed to set up a stall at a car-boot sale in Berkshire, only 12 hours after picking up the man‑of‑the‑match award for marking Romelu Lukaku out of the game during Swansea City’s crucial victory against Everton.

Although the Mercedes may have looked a little out of place among the rows of cars parked up on the grass in the village of Swallowfield, not far from where Mawson’s parents live in Wokingham, the England Under-21 international felt totally at home among the other traders as he helped Beth, his girlfriend, display a few unwanted belongings as well as a couple of things that he thought were still in their apartment back in Swansea.
