Chelsea starlet set for perfect loan move ahead of pivotal season

Chelsea have a mass array of talent coming through the ranks within their academy, and as we know, they are adding further quality talent to the first team squad this transfer window.

Competition is furious, but that is exactly what Frank Lampard wants it to be like. It is quality big squads that bring you success and he knows it.

For a rising young star coming through the ranks you will need to have that something special to break into the first team squad, and one player that believes he will have what it takes is midfielder Conor Gallagher.

The 20-year old is close to joining West Brom on loan and could even feature for them as soon as this weekend, according to The Daily Mail.

He will sign an extended contract at Chelsea before joining The Baggies for the season in what will be an excellent move for Gallagher at a pivotal point in his career.
