Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher enjoying Swansea loan

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has enjoyed his loan with Swansea City.

Gallagher has had a fine debut season playing first-team football and been one of the Championship's rising young stars.

Charlton fans were gutted when Chelsea recalled him in January to send him to Swansea.

He explained to The Sun: “It happened very quickly. Chelsea thought sending me to Swansea was better for my development and it's turned out well.

“I had a great time at Charlton. It was a homely club and I made a lot of great friends there. Hopefully they can stay up, they had a lot of injuries and problems with the ownership, so had a lot to contend with.

“But things have been good at Swansea — and all the focus is now on winning the remaining games to hopefully push this club back into the Premier League."
