HOT on the heels of Axel Tuanzebe apparently saying his goodbyes on Instagram, Tmm Abraham appears to be doing the same.
Villa are hoping to land Abraham on a permanent basis in a deal that would cost £25million.
But Abraham has always said he wants to try and break into the Chelsea first team – and nothing has happened to change that.
He could end up playing for Frank Lampard if Maurizio Sarri leaves and, with a two window transfer ban in place, Abraham might see an opportunity.
Certainly, his online message reads as more of a ‘farewell’ than a ‘see you later’.
He posted: “Where do I start. Firstly I want to thank everyone @avfcofficial for a unforgettable season, felt the love and support from the get go & we did it together!
“This club will always have a place in my heart. @avfcofficial welcome to the Premier League.”
After that, it seems unlikely that Abraham will be heading for Villa anytime soon but, as with Tuanzebe, he could not have ended his spell in any better way after helping to secure promotion.
And with boss Dean Smith looking at the likes of Neal Maupay and Kemar Roofe on permanent deals next season, it would be no surprise if Abraham has already told Villa his ambitons lie at his parent club.
