When Will Chelsea Discuss New Deal With Gallagher?

The journalist claims that right now there is still time for the parties to take concrete steps into finalising a new contract for the midfielder. He reiterates that Chelsea are pleased with Gallagher’s performances for the club this season, but they will take some time to discuss a new contract for him.

The 23-year-old’s current contract with the London heavyweights expires in June 2025. Hence there is still time for Pochettino’s side to start discussions with the Englishman over a new long-term deal to keep him well beyond that period.

Gallagher Enjoying Prolific Season

The 23-year-old was the focal point of a lot of transfer interest amid questions over his future during the summer transfer window. Tottenham Hotspur reportedly launched a bid to sign him but saw the deal fall through. Chelsea’s decision to not sell Gallagher, despite signing Moises Caicedo, has been vindicated as he has excelled under Pochettino.

The Englishman has provided four assists in 14 Premier League appearances for his side and also captained the Blues quite a few times in this campaign. Gallagher has shown a lot of heart with his energetic displays, winning possession in key areas and adding more liveliness to Chelsea’s attack. The 23-year-old, hailed as “extraordinary” last year, seems to be here to stay at the London side for years and will probably see his good form rewarded with a new contract.
