On-loan Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has stated that he is not considering his future at the club during his loan spell at Crystal Palace.
This comes after the midfielder added his seventh goal this season with the Al-Nisour team, and he looked impressive.
Speaking to Sky Sports after Crystal Palace’s 1-1 draw at Brighton, Gallagher opened up his future.
He said: “We know Chelsea are one of the best teams in the world at the moment. It’s a tough team to get into. But I’m not thinking about that right now.”
It was recently reported that Chelsea could no longer call up Gallagher in January because he has played more than 50 per cent of matches for Patrick Vera on loan this season.
However, it looks like the midfielder could return to Chelsea at the end of the season to vie for his place in Thomas Tuchel’s squad after impressing in the Premier League this season.
The German has previously won praise for the loaned midfielder.
He said: “I’ve said many times how much we love Connor, and how successful he is. We saw his goals, we see his performance throughout.
“We need to sort out our problems because we’re a bit unlucky with injuries in the middle of our game. We’re struggling with that but it has nothing to do with Connor.”
It remains to be seen what the future holds, but if the 21-year-old continues to do well, he will be ready to return to his father’s club.
