Tammy Abraham revealed he is relishing the opportunity to work with former Chelsea duo Paul Clement and Claude Makelele at Swansea City.

Blues striker Abraham will spend the season at the Liberty after agreeing a season-long loan move with the Swans.

The 19-year-old linked up with his new team-mates on Sunday night at the club’s America training base in Raleigh, North Carolina.

And he revealed he is looking forward to working with former Chelsea assistant Clement and ex-Blues midfielder Makelele.

“I’m astonished. I can’t wait to work with them,” said Abraham.

“I don’t know them because I was really young when they were at Chelsea, but I can learn a lot from them.

“I’ve only had one session with them but they seem lovely people.

“The training is lively and everyone has a smile on their face when they are training.

“It’s the right environment to be around.”
