Will Crystal Palace sign in-form Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher permanently at the end of the season? Crystal Palace boss gives verdict

Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher has impressed at Crystal Palace, with the Chelsea academy graduate scoring 3 goals and providing 2 assists in 9 appearances for Crystal Palace.

Gallagher scored and provided an assist as Crystal Palace beat Manchester City 2-0 on Saturday afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira refused to be drawn on whether the club would be interested in permanently signing Gallagher at the end of his loan deal next summer.

“It’s really too early to talk about these kind of decisions,” said Vieira.

“We are really glad that he decided to come to our football club and I think we had the tools to attract him to our football club and I believe that he made the right decision, but what will happen in the future I think we have to wait a couple of months to talk about that.”

It’s highly unlikely Chelsea will be willing to sell Gallagher even if Crystal Palace wants to sign the midfielder permanently.
