Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has tipped Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher to have a bright future.

Gallagher has impressed while on loan with Crystal Palace this season, scoring four goals and providing two assists in just ten Premier League games.

“The Chelsea loanee was brilliant for Palace yet again, scoring a great goal to wrap up the win. It’s been an outstanding season for the playmaker and there’s plenty more to come,” Shearer said.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel recently hailed Gallagher.

Tuchel said: “He is not hard to follow because he is standing out every single matchday so it’s an easy one to follow and credit to him.

“We had long talks in pre-season and we imagined he could stay and fight for his place here.

“But we decided that when the talks came up with Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace, he understood the role he could have in the Premier League at the club. He wanted to take the challenge.

“We also agreed to let him go because we thought, in the end, this could be the right thing to do. You need a bit of luck and, of course, a lot of quality.

“Conor’s heart is so, so big; you could wake him up at 4am and he’ll start running and sprinting, collecting balls and winning duels. This is what he does. He feels good and has the trust of the club and manager.

“Right now, it’s the beginning of November and he is an important member of the Crystal Palace squad. It’s good where he is and there is no need to change this. He feels good and feels a huge part at this club.”
