Leyton Orient's 18 year old striker Tristan Abrahams signed a two year contract with Norwich on 31st July 2017. He made his first team debut for Orient in March 2017 and made eight further appearances, including netting the winner against Hartlepool United in April.
Abrahams will be loaned back to Leyton Orient for the 2017/18 season, but will be available to train with and feature for City’s U23s.
Matt Gill, City’s Under-23s manager, said: “Tristan had a very good end to last season, coming back from his loan [at Cambridge City] and making his senior debut at Orient in difficult circumstances. That was fantastic for the young lad, and he’s hit the ground running in first-team football. We want our boys playing senior football, so this deal works really well for us – he plays senior football and also integrates with the lads here too. He’s very athletic and everyone you speak to about him will tell you what a great attitude he has.”
Richard Money, City’s Head of Academy, added: “He’s played League Two football and is still young. He’s a big, strong centre-forward and one we think we can develop. The fact he’s already at a good club and that they want to take him back on loan is a good deal for everybody.”
