Southampton striker Sam Gallagher in talks with Blackburn

Southampton striker Sam Gallagher is in talks with Blackburn Rovers.

Sky Sports says, though, there are other Championship clubs showing strong interest in the 23-year-old forward.

The academy graduate will be allowed to leave the Saints permanently following a number of loans, which included Blackburn during 2017-18.

Gallagher, who has two years remaining on his current contract, featured only six times for Southampton last season.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is now willing to see Gallagher sold.
