Loanee Tammy Abraham has been brilliant so far for Aston Villa. The 21-year-old has scored 13 goals in the Championship from 17 games for the Villains. The good form of Abraham has coincided with Villa’s revival this season under manager Dean Smith after Steve Bruce was sacked.
Villa are currently in eighth position in the Championship standings and are three points adrift of the playoff positions. It will be vital that the club keeps Abraham for the rest of the season if they want to challenge for a place in the Premier League next season.
It will not be surprising if clubs from the top flight do display interest in the Blues-contracted starlet during the January transfer window. He has shown remarkable potential for a young player and despite the fact that he struggled for consistency in the top flight with Swansea City last season, he definitely deserves another shot.
Even though the chance to appear in the Premier League must appeal to Abraham, he should remain with Villa for the good of his career. He appears to be enjoying his football under Smith and has found form. Joining another club at this stage of the campaign will require him to adapt to new surroundings and there is no certainty that he would fit into a new environment if he were to move.
Instead, Abraham must remain at Villa Park until the end of the season and continue to develop as a player. Following that, the Blues should either consider integrating him into the first team or sending him out on another loan spell.
Abraham is already a proven scorer in the Championship. He has done well in the English second tier this season and also performed well for Bristol City during the 2016-17 season. If one thing is certain, the Englishman should either be playing in the Premier League next season or another of the top European leagues.
