Derby’s interest in Abraham should free up Vydra for Leeds move

Derby County are considering a loan move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, which should free up Matej Vydra to join Leeds United, according to The Telegraph.

What’s the story?

Leeds United have long been linked with the Championship’s top goal scorer from last season, and it seems an £11million move for Vydra is imminent, particularly after he was excluded from Derby’s training camp, according to The Telegraph.

However, just in case Leeds fans needed further reassurances that the deal should be going ahead, The Telegraph also reports that new Derby boss Frank Lampard is looking to sign Tammy Abraham on loan from Chelsea as a replacement up top.

Good news for all concerned

Rams fans will have been resigned for some time that their star striker will be leaving this summer, but the news that Tammy Abraham could be joining will be a welcome relief.

The 20-year-old may not have hit the heights with Swansea last season but the speedy front man was on fire in his previous season in the Championship, scoring 23 goals for Bristol City.

Derby will be replacing like for like with a lethal finisher and if both Championship clubs are successful in signing their targets then it could be an interesting race for the Golden Boot next season.
