Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher is having an awesome time on loan with Championship side Charlton Athletic, having joined Charlton during the summer.

Gallagher has been at Chelsea since the age of eight and played his part in FA Youth Cup and Under-18 league title successes during his time in the Chelsea Academy.

Gallagher won the Under-17 World Cup with England in 2017 and was our Academy Player of the Year following an impressive season last term in the Chelsea development squad and Under-19s.

Gallagher has already scored 4 goals for Charlton this season, and he has admitted that he’s aiming to add goals to his game.

He told the official Chelsea website: “Goals are something I wanted to add to my game this season. Before I joined Charlton, I knew they mainly played a diamond and I feel my best position is box-to-box so the side of the diamond really suits me.

“It gives me licence to make the box and try to create chances and score goals. Thankfully, I’ve scored a few already this season and hopefully I can score a few more.

Gallagher was called up to the England U21 squad recently and the youngster has admitted that it’s a proud moment for him.

He revealed: “It means a lot to me and my family as well. Through the age groups with England, all the way from the Under-18s up, they always say there’s a pathway to the Under-21s and the senior team.

“My aim for this season was to get into the Under-21s squad so I’ve been lucky to achieve that already and hopefully I can keep my place there.”
