Timmy Abraham has today turned professional with Fulham by signing a two-year contract at Craven Cottage.

The talented striker, who is the younger brother of Chelsea forward Tammy, joined the Whites in the summer from Charlton Athletic. Abraham has scored twice in ten league appearances for Fulham’s under 18 outfit and the Whites moved quickly to offer professional terms to the promising forward before his scholarship ended in 2019.

Abraham told Fulham’s official website:

It’s a very good feeling. Every young player wants to get this point where they become a professional. I hope to achieve much more – and that is just the start of many more things to come.

The striker said one of the main attractions of staying with Fulham was that Slavisa Jokanovic has handed senior opportunities to young players.

I’ve settled in well. It’s a great family club with a good philosophy so hopefully I can keep going. I try to be the best I can in every game and I just want to focus on going forward. For everybody here it’s very encouraging to see others in the academy getting opportunities because you know there is a chance if you do well.
