​Wright-Phillips urges Chelsea starlets Gallagher, Gilmour to stick with loan moves

Former Chelsea and Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has told Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour not to cut short their season-long loan moves.

Gallagher has been excellent for Crystal Palace in the Premier League, managing three goals and four assists in 11 matches.

However, Gilmour has struggled for game time at Norwich, who are in the relegation places in the Premier League.

"If I was either of those two players, especially playing the way that they are both playing. I think the best bet for them personally is to stay where they are," Wright-Phillips told

"Especially Conor, he's loved at Crystal Palace, Patrick Vieira plays him all the time, he's doing really really well. He's getting assists and goals.

"Billy, since the sacking of the manager and Dean Smith's gone in, apart from Scotland Billy is playing outstanding well. He played magnificently for Norwich on Saturday.

"The way he plays for Scotland, he'll fit into a lot of Premier League teams' starting XI's every game and possibly some teams' first name on the team sheet.

"For me, while they're playing so well and gaining all this Premier League experience and learning I think they should just stay there and get on with it."
