Midfielder gets the perfect Chelsea mentor in new loan move

As the days go on and the transfer window reaches its last couple of weeks, Chelsea are starting to announce more player departures.

There was another loan move confirmed yesterday, and it is a great move for all parties.

Highly rated midfielder Conor Gallagher has joined West Brom on a season-long loan deal, after signing a new contract extension at Chelsea.

The 20-year old England youth international will be heading out to gain his first bit of experience playing in senior football in the Premier League, this is a perfect move for him.

But what makes it even more perfect is the fact that he will be gaining a ‘Chelsea’ mentor by joining The Baggies – former Blues defender Branislav Ivanovic, who was also confirmed as a new signing by West Brom this week.

Ivanovic still loves Chelsea and you just know that he will make it a priority to help the development of Gallagher throughout the season.
