Mauricio Pochettino has approved Chelsea’s plans to tie Gallagher down to a new contract in the coming weeks.
Chelsea are planning to give their midfielder Conor Gallagher a new contract ahead of the winter transfer window. He currently has two years in his contact. His contract will expire in 2025.
Gallagher was made available for transfer during the summer as Chelsea officials sought to raise money after another summer of hectic spending.
The 23-year-old midfielder is linked with some top Premier League clubs like Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United. He has started all ten Premier League games so far this season.
Gallagher was also the captain for Chelsea in the absence of usual skipper Reece James. Mauricio Pochettino has approved Chelsea’s plans to try and tie the academy graduate down to a new contract in the coming weeks.
Last month, Gallagher insisted he was unsure of his future during the summer but credited Pochettino for sticking by him.
“Before I met Pochettino, I wasn’t sure [on my future] because there was so much happening, so many players leaving and coming in,” the midfielder said. “I was buzzing to play under him and stay at Chelsea and prove myself to the club and fans more this season.”
Pochettino also admired the 23-year-old in response to his comments. He said, “First of all, you have to see how they feel, in this case the player and the club, the intentions of either side. It’s about feeling good together.”
“He’s a player who is doing fantastically. He’s an amazing player and we are so happy with how he is doing things.’”
