Swans loan ace to face Kickers

Swansea City

Tammy Abraham is set to make his Swansea debut this week after joining up with the club ahead of his season-long loan from Chelsea.

The 19-year-old agreed to join the Swans shortly after penning a new contract at Stamford Bridge, but his move to the South Wales outfit has been delayed because he was on holiday after helping England’s Under-21 side reach the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championship in Poland.

However, Abraham, who scored 26 goals on loan at Championship side Bristol City last term, has now joined up with head coach Paul Clement and the rest of the squad on their United States tour.

The Swans are now in North Carolina having travelled there from Philadelphia following a 2-2 draw against MLS side the Union at Talen Energy Stadium.

The next game is on Wednesday against Richmond Kickers and it is likely that Abraham will get his first taste of action in a Swansea shirt, before the second and final game of the trip against North Carolina.
