Fulham have loaned striker Timmy Abraham to Bristol Rovers on a deal which will run to the end of the League One season.

The 19-year-old, the brother of Chelsea striker Tammy, is yet to make his first team debut but has been a regular in the Under-23 side.

Abraham had been a long-term Rovers target and the club continued to pursue a deal despite a change in management.

"This is an opportunity to experience League football," boss Ben Garner said.

He told the club website: "Timmy is a player that was identified by the club prior to my arrival and a deal has been in motion for a long time.

"He offers different attributes to what we have and the potential to develop as a player."

Fulham FC statement
Timmy Abraham has joined Bristol Rovers on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 19-year-old has been in fine form for Fulham’s PL2 side of late, notching five times since the end of October.

He joins his new team midway through what has been a steady campaign for the Gas, who currently sit 13th in Sky Bet League One.

Abraham could make his league debut on Saturday, in Rovers’ home clash with Coventry City at the Memorial Stadium.
