Chelsea Cannot Recall Conor Gallagher From Loan Spell At Crystal Palace Due To Clause

Conor Gallagher will remain at Crystal Palace for the remainder of his season-long loan spell, with Chelsea unable to recall the player because of a break clause inserted into his contract.

The 21-year-old midfielder has been a revelation for the Eagles this season. In 15 Premier League appearances, he has contributed massively in terms of his output, notching six goals and three assists.

In fact, Gallagher's impressive run of form has brought speculation that European champions Chelsea could recall the player in January, with his goals being a huge factor in Palace's respectable league position.

That being said, it now looks like Gallagher will stay at Selhurst Park for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign after it emerged that the midfielder has made enough appearances to prevent a January recall from being activated by Chelsea, report The Athletic.

The same can be said for Billy Gilmour, who is on a season-long loan at Premier League strugglers Norwich.

Gallagher, who made his senior England debut against San Marino in November, scored a brace against Everton on Sunday to end Palace's run of four games without a win.

He gave a cracking post-match interview after the game. "The last goal - that feeling is incredible," he told Sky Sports after the game.

"I love it. Them [Palace fans] just singing my name right now is a great feeling for me. They give me confidence which is amazing for a player."


Thoughts on Gallagher's campaign at Palace this season? Do you think he has the potential to break into Thomas Tuchel's plans next year?

Let us know in the comments.
