Chelsea fans will love what chairman Bruce Buck said about transfers amid Tammy Abraham awards

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham picked up the Premier League Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year trophies at the London Football Awards on Thursday night.

The striker has been in fine form this season, grabbing 15 goals in his first season as the Blues’ first choice striker.

Abraham was up against stiff competition in both categories, beating Gary Cahill, Son Heung-min, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and teammate Jorginho to the main award.

While in the award for young stars, he came out on top of Bryan Mbeumo, Fikayo Tomori, Gabriel Martinelli and teammate Mason Mount.

Abraham has grabbed his chance ahead of Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud, and Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck gave out some more praise for the striker – joking that all clubs should consider a transfer ban.

“The nominees show a transfer ban is a very good thing,” Buck joked.
