"He can become an absolute hero" - Sky Sports presenter confirms Chelsea deal for striker


Chelsea striker Kevin Oghenetega Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham can do well in the English Premier League according to Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling.

More commonly known as Tammy Abraham, the youngster has season-long loan offers from Newcastle United and newly-promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

Recent reports have claimed that the Blues have already reached an agreement with the Magpies for the transfer of the player and Stelling is convinced the 19-year-old can become a hero at the St James' Park.

"I really do, yeah [he can do well in the Premier League]," Stelling is quoted as saying by Chronicle Live.

"When he came to Bristol City, friends of mine at Chelsea came to me and said of all our loanees, he's the one who could make the grade at Stamford Bridge.

"They felt he has the potential to be a Premier League player, and I certainly do as well.

"The attraction is if you do go to Newcastle and you are a striker, and you do score goals, you are an absolute hero up there," Stelling added.

"But Brighton's a smashing club as well with good support too."
