Newcastle Legend Disappointed With Chelsea Wonderkid For Choosing Swansea City Over The MagpiesNewcastle United legend Micky Quinn has expressed shock over Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham preferring a move to Swansea City ahead of the Magpies.

Quinn believes the Swans do not have the same pedigree as Newcastle United, who have won four top flight titles, six FA Cups, and have an iconic manager in Rafa Benitez who can help him realize his potential.

It has been claimed that Abraham turned down a move to St James' Park because Chelsea were concerned about the city's famous nightlife, but Quinn has disagreed with the player and club.

''I have to say I am extremely disappointed in Tammy Abraham,'' Quinn said in Chronicle Live.

''If he really is set to choose Swansea City over Newcastle United, I would seriously question his decision.

''It shouldn’t take me to tell him that Newcastle is a far bigger football club than Swansea.''

He added : ''This claim that Abraham rejected Newcastle because of the nightlife seems pathetic to me as well.

''It’s a cracking night out in the city, and players should be able to enjoy that - but all in moderation.''

Abraham, 19, is expected to complete his move to the Liberty Stadium after the 2017 European U21 Championship.
