Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has agreed to head out on-loan to Championship side Bristol City.
The 18-year-old is a product of Chelsea’s academy and has featured twice for the senior team but was unlikely to get many chances this term.
Antonio Conte has granted the forward permission to depart for the campaign as he looks to get regular professional football under his belt.
The England under-19 international will go straight in The Robins’ squad for their opening fixture of the Championship season against Wigan on Saturday.
City boss Lee Johnson believes the youngster has a big future in the game and thanked the Blues for allowing them to bring in a top-prospect.
Johnson said: “Tammy is a top-class player who I believe has a very bright future in the game.
“We’re delighted that all of the club’s hard work has paid off. He’s one we’ve been chasing for a long time, and we’ve remained patient to get this deal over the line in time for the new season.
“We’re very grateful to Chelsea and Antonio Conte for allowing one of England’s bright young talents to join us, and we’re now able to give him the chance to showcase himself in the Championship.”
