VIDEO: Tammy Abraham Wows New Swansea Teammates with Incredible Squad Initiation

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

​Tammy Abraham has blown his new Swansea City teammates away with a set of lungs even the Welsh Men's Choir would be proud of.

As part of tradition at the Swans, any new arrivals at the club must stand in front of the rest of the team and sing a song of their choice - an initiation into the squad.

Even the staff have to take part. In the past, the likes of Claude Makelele and Paul Clement have even had to warm up their vocal chords and knock out a tune for the team; and it's all usually a bit of fun with everyone ending in laughter at the poor soul stood on a chair embarrassing himself.

However, Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham has changed the game forever.

​​Singing 'End of the Road' by Boys II Men, the 19-year-old could easily be mistaken for taking part in a serious audition as he breaks into song. Kyle Naughton's face says it all.

Unfortunately, the reception from his new teammates proved too much to be able to continue singing, as they began swirling t-shirts around and chanting 'we want more'. What must've been a daunting task for Abraham has just turned him into the most popular lad in the changing room.

The Swans are currently in Raleigh, North Carolina as part of their tour of the United States. The team will then travel to Virginia where they will face USL side Richmond Kickers on Wednesday 19 July.

The Swans have already played two pre-season friendlies; a 1-0 loss to Barnet was followed up by a 2-2 draw with Philadelphia Union.
