Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham near loan to Newcastle - sources

Newcastle United are closing in on the loan signing of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, sources close to the North East club have told ESPN FC.

Abraham enjoyed a fantastic season out on loan at Bristol City last season, scoring 26 goals in all competitions for the Championship club.

A number of clubs have expressed an interest to Chelsea in taking Abraham on loan next season, but sources said Newcastle are in pole position to land the England Under-21 international.

Chelsea were keen to get assurances from Abraham's suitors that the powerful forward would get enough regular playing time at whatever club they decided to send him to.

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is a big fan of Abraham and he sees him as a key addition to his plans as he prepares for life back in the Premier League next season.

As reported by ESPN FC last month, Chelsea are also set to tie Abraham to a new deal at Stamford Bridge before sending him out on loan with his first-team opportunities likely to be limited next season in Antonio Conte's star-studded side.

Abraham will become Newcastle's second signing of the summer and the second from Chelsea after they turned Christian Atsu's loan move into a permanent deal last month.
