Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has completed a loan signing to the Liberty Stadium – and some Swansea City fans on Twitter are thrilled about signing him.
The Blues confirmed on Wednesday that the 19-year-old has departed Stamford Bridge on a short-term loan until the end of the season to join Swansea.
He spent the first half of the campaign out on loan at Charlton Athletic in the Championship, but Frank Lampard’s team opted to recall him early.
The England Under-21 international will now spend the remainder of the campaign at Swansea and is now playing for a team that are chasing promotion in the Championship.
Gallagher will link up with another Chelsea loanee in the shape of defender Marc Guehi, plus he’s previously worked with Swans manager Steve Cooper in the England national set-up.
The central midfielder helped build his reputation during his Charlton spell as someone that can dictate play from the centre of the park, as well as chip in with goals.
A selection of Swansea supporters on social media are delighted to see him join and expect him to play an important role in promotion.
It’s excellent news for Chelsea to hear excitement around the teenager and it could be a masterstroke putting him in a team chasing promotion.
There is a danger he may struggle to settle in at a new team, but some familiar faces should help with that.
Here are some Swansea fans thrilled to see the Chelsea star arrive on loan:
