Club golden boot-winning prospect confirms signing new Chelsea contract

New, comments

More happy contract news for Chelsea youngsters on Thursday, as 18-year-old Tammy Abraham confirmed on his official Twitter account that he signed a new contract with Chelsea.

This is Abraham's second pro deal with Chelsea already, following on from last October's initial professional contract (when he turned 17).  Presumably, this new deal has not only an improved wage packet but probably a couple additional years as well.

Abraham, alongside fellow goal-scoring phenom Dominic Solanke led the Chelsea club goalscoring charts with 41 goals apiece last season.  While Solanke's now off on a loan at Vitesse, Abraham has taken over as the first-choice striker for Chelsea U21, where he has continued to pour in the goals.  After scoring in nearly every single pre-season match, he has 4 goals in 6(1) appearances for the U21s and U19s this season.

Congrats, goal machine!


Take that, Messi's polka dot tuxedo!
