West Brom manager labels Conor Gallagher loan deal as 'basically done'

  • The Chelsea youngster is set to join the Premier League newcomers for the 2020/21 season.
  • Slaven Bilic has hinted that he expects Gallagher to play an important role for his team.
  • Chelsea are understood to have agreed a contract extension with their academy graduate.

"I think Conor [Gallagher] is a paperwork thing. It is basically done but it is the paperwork," West Bromwich manager Slaven Bilic said as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"He will give us something that we don’t have, that dynamic in the midfield, and I am expecting a lot from him.

"I am delighted and I know the player well from the Championship where he made an impact first at Charlton and then at Swansea."

Gallagher has been attracting interest from many Premier League clubs after a successful year in the second tier, so it's quite a coup for West Brom to get the midfielder.

Last season, Conor impressed at both relegation battlers Charlton and promotion candidates Swansea, making a total of 47 first-team appearances in all competitions, scoring 6 goals and providing 11 assists.

It's understood that Gallagher has already agreed a contract extension with Chelsea ahead of leaving on another loan, as his current deal expires in just two years.
