England star Tammy Abraham has vowed to take Championship side Aston Villa to the Premier League next season.
Abraham who did well during pre-season with Chelsea joined Villa on loan after the Blues could not assure him of regular playing time.
He was on loan with Swansea last season and claimed he rejected other teams to be with the London side.
“It started off from the end of last season where Chelsea did say I’d be involved in their team and squad,” Abraham told Villa’s website.
“That’s the reason why I said no to a lot of teams that came from abroad and the Premier League as well, but towards the end, I found that I need to play games and need to play football, and looking at a team like Aston Villa, who I believe should be in the Premier League, it’s a great chance for me to come out and showcase myself here.
“It’s a situation where I want to be, in a team where I believe strongly in the team and just be in a good environment enjoying myself again.
“Hopefully that can be this place and I can take them to the Premier League.”
