Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is reportedly set to be on the move during the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old has impressed during his loan spell at Charlton Athletic in the first half of the season, but he’s set to transfer elsewhere.
According to Football.London, the England Under-21 international has played his last game for Charlton and he will be recalled from his loan this week.
It is understood that the Blues don’t plan to keep him at Stamford Bridge for long and hope to loan him out elsewhere for the second half of the campaign.
The report explains that Premier League duo Burnley and Norwich City will miss out on his signature, as they wanted to try complete some kind of permanent deal for him.
Gallagher’s expected loan move this January comes after some excellent form with Charlton and perhaps Chelsea want him to play at a higher level.
The teenager is playing in a Charlton team 19th in the Championship, but he’s definitely got the qualities to slot in at a level above.
He is a deep-lying playmaker that has come out of the Chelsea academy graduate as someone that is confident in possession and also has an eye for goal.
It will be intriguing to see where he ends up for the second half of the season and the club need to ensure they don’t ruin his progress.
