Newcastle United are closing in on the season-long loan signing of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, according to Sky sources.

A deal for the 19-year-old, who spent last season at Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship, is expected to be completed in the next few days.

Chelsea have been keen for assurances that Abraham will feature regularly for his next loan club, with Brighton also understood to have been interested in his services for next season.

But Abraham is set to become Rafa Benitez’s second signing of the summer after the permanent capture of Christian Atsu for £6.2m, also from Chelsea, following his successful season-long loan at the Championship winners last term.

Abraham – an England U21 striker – scored 26 goals on loan at Bristol City last season.

He has never started a match for Chelsea, making just two senior appearances as sub in the Premier League.

Sky sources understand Brighton remain interested in Fraizer Campbell, who is available on a free transfer from Crystal Palace next month.
