Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher has opened up and announced he is delighted with the deal that sees him make the loan move to West Brom
The 20-year-old is regarded very highly at Stamford Bridge and they have big hopes for his future, but with all the attacking quality that the club have in the side right now, the decision was made to send him out on-loan.
Speaking after he signed a new contract with the club and made the move to West Brom, England U-21 international Gallagher said on the club website: “There was a lot of interest from the Premier League, which is where I wanted to play this season, but this is where I want to be.
“West Brom stood out to me because of the way they played last season.
“I played against them two or three times and I liked how they approached the game.
“I felt that it would suit me and it would be best for my development. I felt it could help me become the player I want to be and I’m pleased to get this agreement sorted.
“I spoke to Slaven Bilic the other day just to see how things stood and I liked what I heard and how he wanted me to play.
“It all made sense to me and I’m really looking forward to getting started.”
Gallagher is a very talented young man and this is a move that needed to happen, so it is a very good decision from the club to send him there, as he will get the game time that he needs to develop.
