Charlton manager Lee Bowyer has hailed the quality of Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher.

Bowyer has revealed he made a gamble signing Gallagher on loan from Chelsea during the summer but admits the decision has massively paid off for Charlton.

Gallagher has started all but one of Charlton’s opening matches this season, chipping in with four goals and two assists from midfield.

“He’s a good player,” Bowyer told talkSPORT.

“For us it was a bit of a gamble; he had never been on loan anywhere before and is only 19 so he’s still learning the game.

“But he’s hit the ground running.

“Whatever you tell him he does and I just keep encouraging him to get in the box, and things are falling for him at the moment.

“His willingness and work rate are unreal, so he’s fitted in really well.

“He’s still learning though – he needs to learn – but he’s been a great addition for us.”
