Tammy Abraham’s future has been in question this January, with Premier League clubs circling following his success in the Championship with Aston Villa through the first 6 months of this season.
The striker has been banging them in for the Villains, and had Premier League new boys Wolves, on his tail this month interested in bringing him back to the top flight.
But according to rumours that emerged yesterday, Tammy has decided to stick with Villa’s promotion push.
Big boost for Villa – Tammy Abraham has turned down a loan move to Wolves in favour of remaining with Villa for the remainder of the season & trying to win promotion. Sounds like Abraham would be open to a permanent move to the PL, but not another loan. More on @guardian_sport

Some will question his ambition for turning down Nuno’s team, but it’s a sensible move ultimately. We saw with Swansea last season that Premier League football isn’t always worth it, and he’s still learning a lot at Villa.
There’s a lot more competition at Wolves too, with some quality forwards in that squad, and the risk of ending up sitting on the bench is understandably too great for Tammy. Let’s hope he gets a chance to impress Maurizio Sarri this summer.
