Exclusive reveals NUFC are set to miss out on top transfer target

Newcastle United’s media partner, The Mirror, released an exclusive last night, reporting that Swansea City have won the race to sign NUFC loan target Tammy Abraham.

Despite real efforts from Benitez and Newcastle to bring the 19-year-old to Tyneside, Abraham has agreed a one-year loan with Swansea, seeing him link up with Paul Clement – who he knows well from his Chelsea days after being number two to Carlo Ancelotti at Stamford Bridge.

After weeks of speculation surrounding this transfer, it is frustrating to hear he’s opted against a move to NUFC, however his indecision and hesitance to join Newcastle, combined with his lack of Premier League experience could mean this is a bullet dodged.

Abraham is undoubtedly a big talent, but he and Chelsea will demand he plays week in week out.

Do we really want a 19-year-old striker with just one season of senior football under his belt and no Premier League experience leading our line in such a big season next year? I’m not so sure.

Moving on, it would not surprise me if Newcastle now pursued previously linked Burnley striker Andre Gray, whilst it remains to be seen if our interest in Porto’s Vincent Aboubakar is genuine.
