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.
Happy to sign a new contract at Chelsea FC hopefully the start of many good things to come ⚽️ #CFC— Tammy abraham (@tammyabraham) October 15, 2015
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.
Tammy Abraham's new contract announced earlier is until the end of the 2018-19 season. #CFC— Chelsea Youth (@chelseayouth) October 15, 2015
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!
