The Chelsea loanee has made a positive first impression after joining the Swans

Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham scored his second goal in three preseason fixtures on Sunday, and has promised fans that he came to Swansea City to score goals.

The Anglo-Nigerian frontman opened the scoring in a 2-0 friendly victory over Birmingham City with an excellent volley, having previously appeared somewhat isolated during the match.

However, as he demonstrated in the Championship with Bristol City last term—when he scored 22 goals—he often just needs the tiniest of opportunities to make a big impression.

“I am very pleased,” Abraham told the Swans’ official website after the match. “I came here to score goals and help the team as much as I can.

“I have been in the right place at the right time and I am happy I have got my goals,” he added. “It was a nice finish.

“I could have had more but I take that and move on. We get ready for the next game and for the season.”

The forward looks set to play a key role for Paul Clement’s side this season after playing a prominent part in the Welsh club’s preseason, and is raring to get his competitive Swans career underway when they face Southampton on the opening day of the season.

“We feel we are on course for Southampton,” Abraham continued. “We know it’s getting closer and closer and we have to be ready. We have to show everyone what we are made of in the first game.”

The forward found the net for England in the semi-finals of the U-20 European Championships this summer, but could also represent Nigeria at senior level.
