Palace announce arrival of Gallagher on loan from Chelsea

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Conor Gallagher on loan from Chelsea.

The midfielder joins as part of Patrick Vieira’s rebuild at Selhurst Park, which has already seen Joachim Andersen and Marc Guehi taken to the club.

Gallagher spent last season with West Brom, where he made 30 Premier League appearances.



Despite some impressive displays, alongside goals against Sheffield United and , the 21-year-old couldn’t help West Brom to avoid relegation.

Speaking about his loan move, Gallagher told the club’s official website: “I’m buzzing to be here. I can’t wait to get started, I’m happy to get the deal over the line.

“I spoke to the manager, I liked what he said, I liked how he wants to play, how he wants me to play and how he wants the team to play. I feel like I can learn from him and the players around me.”

Chairman Steve Parish added: “I am delighted Conor has chosen to come to Crystal Palace on a season-long loan after some impressive performances in the Premier League last season.

“We very much look forward to him joining the squad as we continue to build towards the new season.”

stated that Gallagher chose to join Palace over Leeds United due to three main reasons.

They were: A greater chance of first-team football, the option to stay in London and the opportunity to work with Vieira.

Gallagher has apparently impressed Chelsea manager in pre-season training, but the German couldn’t offer him regular game time.

That forced the young star to search for a temporary home, with a side which would get him on the ball more often than West Brom.

It remains to be seen how Gallagher will fit into Vieira’s system. The Frenchman already has Luka Milivojevic, Jairo Riedewald and James McArthur available in central midfield.

Earlier in the year, the situation at Palace was looking bleak. They had a host of first-team players coming to the end of their contracts, while the future of Roy Hodgson was yet to be decided.

has brought optimism to pretty much everyone involved with the club.

And with their renewed transfer policy taking shape, it could be an exciting season for the Eagles.

Abraham ‘fits the bill’ as an Arsenal signing, says Winterburn

Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn believes Tammy Abraham fits the profile of a potential signing for the club.

Abraham looks set to leave Chelsea this summer as the Blues continue their pursuit of Erling Haaland.

The Englishman made 22 Premier League appearances last term, scoring six goals, but was left out of the squad entirely on multiple occasions.


Breakout: One fringe player per club who could emerge


He’s been linked with a . Reports have suggested Arsenal are monitoring his situation and could make an offer if Chelsea decide to leave him leave.

Reacting to the news, Winterburn said (): “He certainly would fit the bill of recent Arsenal signings, young with a point to prove.

“People will question his consistency but what you want is for these young players to get a run in the team.

“Is he going to get a run in a team if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is playing well? Probably not unless Aubameyang can be switched to the left-hand side – although you then need to leave out either Nicolas Pepe or Bukayo Saka.

“With Abraham, there’s potential there and development for a young, young player. So, I think it’s an option [for] Arsenal, although with Alexandre Lacazette being linked with a move away, it could be just a name that has been thrown into a hat.”

Despite Lacazette scoring 17 goals in all competitions last season, it’s believed Arsenal are for just £15million.

have once again been tipped to sign him as part of their search for Luis Suarez’s new strike partner.

When asked about Lacazette, Winterburn continued: “Arsenal shouldn’t sell Lacazette unless they’ve got an upgrade in place. I wouldn’t let him go until we have secured another striker. I’ve said that all along.

“Lacazette is a different striker to anything Arsenal have at the club. When he’s in top form, he holds the ball up well, his link-up play is good.

“I suppose his strike rate is not the very, very best of what you want, but then we are not at the very, very top of the league either at the moment as well.

“So personally, at the moment, I don’t want to see him go, unless we’ve got someone coming in that’s going to excite me.

“I wouldn’t let him go and then we haven’t got anybody else to bring in. For me, that’s just way too risky.”
