The morning dispatch from the Telegraph’s Matt Law confirms a couple understandings about Tammy Abraham’s situation, who’s now done with his international commitments after England’s loss to Germany on penalty kicks in the U21 Euro semifinals yesterday. As confirmed by multiple reports last week, the teenager has chosen to join Swansea City on loan for next season despite stronger and longer rumors linking him with Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion. Swansea’s strong Chelsea connections through their head coach and assistant manager no doubt played a big role, as did their striker situation that’s likely to be more favorable especially if Fernando Llorente leaves at some point in the next two months.
Swansea City captain Leon Britton has been rewarded for his role in the club's successful bid for Premier League survival with an improved one-year contract. The 34-year-old's existing deal had been due to expire in 2018 but his new contract includes the option for a further 12 months, dependant on appearances. Britton initially joined Swansea from West Ham in December 2002 and has risen through the divisions with the club, from League Two to the Premier League.
Wilfried Bony is determined to prove his worth to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, but concedes his future at the Etihad Stadium is out of his hands. The Ivory Coast striker joined City in a deal reported to be worth £28million from Swansea City in January 2015. With Gabriel Jesus having arrived in January and Alexis Sanchez an apparent target, it appears unlikely that City boss Guardiola will include him in his plans, but Bony is focused on knuckling down and proving his worth.
