With the future of Michy Batshuayi more than uncertain at Stamford Bridge after some poor performances, it seems Chelsea are thinking about recalling Tammy Abraham from his loan at Swansea in the second part of the season.
The young striker has already scored five goals in ten games and Swansea’s manager Paul Clement insists he will stay in Wales all season long.
“There is a stipulation in place that if he does not meet a certain amount of games, a proportion of games by the halfway stage, he can be recalled,” – Clement explained – That is a normal thing to have on a season-long loan in place to protect the player, to make sure he’s getting the right amount of game time. But if we were bringing in a player of his ability then I felt he was coming here to play. As we stand there is no reason to think he would not meet that criteria. He’s well on course for that and he’ll be here for the year. The only way they can recall him is if he is sat on the bench for the remaining games. But the way he’s playing I can’t see that happening.’
