Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has claimed to the Evening Standard that he only wants to play for the Blues.

The 22-year-old is finally enjoying his first season as a proper first team player at Stamford Bridge, after a plethora of loan spells.

Consecutive successful Premier League loans at West Brom and Crystal Palace helped him earn a place at Chelsea for this campaign.

After struggling out of position under Thomas Tuchel, he has begun to show he can compete for minutes under Graham Potter.

The midfielder has claimed that he is still committed to the West London club, saying he can still bring more to the club.

Gallagher committed to Chelsea

He said: “I have always known that Chelsea is my club and I have always backed myself to be good enough to play in the first team. I still feel there is more to come from me and, hopefully, I can improve, and help the club.

“I am always hungry to play and perform as well as I can. I always train my hardest and whenever the manager needs me to play, if it’s a start or to come off the bench, I’ll be ready and raring to go. Of course, it doesn’t always go as you want but I’ll always keep my head up and try to impress again.”

Gallagher is one of the few Chelsea players who are still looking to prove Gareth Southgate why they should be taken to this winter’s World Cup.

He, alongside Ruben Loftus-Cheek, will be looking to break into the midfield options of the Three Lions, having both shown signs of their best in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Trevoh Chalobah will be hoping the continuation of his unbeaten streak while starting for the Blues will see him come under consideration for the weak looking backline.
