Chelsea midfielder reveals why he joined West Brom on loan

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has officially joined West Bromwich Albion on loan.

The 20-year-old, who was wanted by Leeds, Aston Villa, Newcastle and Crystal Palace, signed a new Chelsea deal before joining West Brom on loan.

Explaining why he joined West Brom on loan, Gallagher said: “There was a lot of interest from the Premier League, which is where I wanted to play this season, but this is where I want to be.

“West Brom stood out to me because of the way they played last season. I played against them two or three times and I liked how they approached the game.

“I felt that it would suit me and it would be best for my development. I felt it could help me become the player I want to be and I’m pleased to get this agreement sorted.”
