Abraham rejects Wolves loan

Tammy Abraham has turned down a loan move to Wolves in favour of remaining with Aston Villa for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old had looked set to join the Premier League club after they made contact with Chelsea last week but Abraham has told Villa he would prefer to stay and try to help them win promotion from the Championship. Villa are 10th, five points behind a play-off place.

The news will give Dean Smith, the Villa manager, and the club’s supporters a major lift. Abraham has scored 16 goals and is the joint top scorer in the Championship. Although he is settled at Villa Park and enjoying his football, there was a clause in the loan deal that allowed Chelsea to recall him this month.

Several Premier League clubs have inquired about signing Abraham, with Wolves at the front of the queue. However, it is understood that although Abraham would be open to a permanent transfer to a Premier League club this month, the prospect of another loan deal is not so appealing.
