Chelsea have confirmed that Conor Gallagher has joined Championship side Swansea City for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.
To make the move go through, Chelsea first had to recall the 19-year-old from his spell at Charlton Athletic.
Gallagher impressed for the Addicks. The midfielder made 26 appearances for Lee Bowyer’s side, missing only one Championship game due to yellow card suspension, scored 6 goals and provided 3 assists.
However, Charlton are just 5 points above the relegation zone at the moment. The Blues were eager to find a club which could give such a promising young player more opportunities to improve. Steve Cooper’s Swansea seem to be exactly what they were looking for.
The Jacks’ boss is building quite an interesting team at the moment. Apart from Gallagher, the 40-year-old has already added Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster and another Chelsea kid Marc Guehi to his squad.
The thing is Brewster, Guehi and Gallagher all played under Cooper and led England U17s to the semi-finals of the 2018 UEFA European U17 Championship, where they lost to the Netherlands on penalties.
