The youngster spend the first half of season on loan.
However, it is now that he is back with the Chelsea first team.
Premier League side Chelsea have to recall Conor Gallagher, who was on loan at Championship side Charlton Athletic, with the midfielder set to train with the first team today. Gallagher has had an excellent first half of the 2019/20 season and has arguably been Charlton’s stand-out player, but according to the media outlet, his time at The Valley could be coming to an end.
According to reports from Football.London and The Sun, the reason for this is not because Chelsea want to play him in their current squad, because reports suggest they will loan him out to another club for the second half of the season. Early reports had implied that a loan move to either Burnley or Norwich City could be on the cards, but both clubs wanted to insert a ‘to buy’ clause for when the loan deal is over.
Chelsea were not willing to do that as they see him as a potential player for the future, with Gallagher having won the club’s academy player of the year last season. The 19-year old has been the subject of interest from Scottish Premier League side Rangers, while Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion are among the clubs south of the border who are interested in signing him.
