Swansea City Sign Conor Gallagher
Swansea announced via their website they had signed the Chelsea midfielder. Gallagher arrives on loan from the remainder of the season.
Gallagher reunites with Steve Cooper and becomes the Swans’ third signing. Cooper continues to bring England’s World Cup-winning squad to South Wales.
Chelsea recalled Gallagher from his productive loan spell at Charlton on Tuesday. The 19-year-old made 26 appearances for the Addicks scoring six goals and assisting two others.
Gallagher could make his debut for Swansea this weekend against Wigan Athletic.
What Was Said
Speaking to the Swansea website about his move, Gallagher said: “I’m very excited to join a big club like Swansea City.
“I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running and making a contribution to the team.
“I have gained a lot of experience from my time with Charlton, I have played almost every minute in the Championship.
“My whole time there was great, and this is a new challenge to get excited about.
“I think there is a bit of expectation because I have scored a few goals, and I like that bit of pressure and I am looking forward to showing what I can do.
“I am a box-to-box midfielder, I am hard-working, I like to think I am good technically and able to score and assist but defend too.
Gallagher Reunites With Rhian Brewster and Marc Guehi
Gallagher also spoke about joining his two friends at Swansea Rhian Brewster and Marc Guehi. “Marc and Rhian are two really good mates of mine. It makes it that bit easier over the first few days.
“We know each other on and off the pitch, they have been good helping me settle in.
“But I am also looking forward to getting to know the rest of the squad too and getting down to work.
“I want to help Swansea get in the play-offs because I definitely think we are capable of doing that.
“With this squad, if we get a good run of games, we could even get automatic promotion because I don’t think you want to be ruling anything out.
“But, on a personal level, it will be about going one game at a time, taking it as it comes and trying to win each game.”
