Abraham Nearing Swansea Loan  (Sky Sports)

Tammy AbrahamSwansea City have signed Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham on a season-long loan.

Abraham signed a new five-year deal with parent-club Chelsea ahead of the loan move.

Abraham was part of the England squad that lost the European U21 Championship semi-final to Germany last month, and spent last season on loan in the Sky Bet Championship with Bristol City.

Swans boss Paul Clement worked with Abraham in his time at Chelsea and was keen to bring the 19-year-old to the Liberty Stadium to boost his attacking options.

Abraham scored 23 goals for the Robins in his first full season of professional football.

His arrival could be preceded by a striker departure with Swansea set to loan Borja Baston to Malaga for the season, according to Sky sources.

Baston has endured a difficult time since arriving in Wales for a club record fee of £15.5m from Atletico Madrid last summer, scoring only once.

He is reported to be house-hunting in Malaga and could undergo a medical on Tuesday.
