Palace, Newcastle battling to sign Chelsea starlet on loan

Conor Gallagher


Crystal Palace and Newcastle United are both interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher on loan, according to reports.

Gallagher is yet to make his senior debut for Chelsea. In 2019/20, he played a total of 47 games while on loan with Championship sides Charlton Athletic and Swansea City.

The 21-year-old then joined West Brom ahead of the 2020/21 campaign as they returned to the Premier League.

Last term was poor for the Baggies as they finished 19th to suffer relegation straight back down to the Championship.

Gallagher was one of their shining lights as he impressed under Sam Allardyce from his 32 outings across all competitions.

Allardyce has advised the midfielder to stay on at West Brom, even with them returning to the Championship.

But Gallagher looks set to secure another Premier League loan move according to The Sun. They report that Chelsea will let their youngster leave on loan this summer.

They add that Crystal Palace and Newcastle are “scrapping” to sign him ahead of the new season.
