Aston Villa handed Conor Gallagher transfer boost

Aston, Six Sports

Patrick Vieira, Arsenal legend and currently the boss of Crystal Palace shared his thought on re-signing Conor Gallagher from Chelsea. Vieira does not think that Crystal Palace will be able to sign or loan in Gallagher for this season. However, this news brings joy to the face of Aston Villa fans.

The Chelsea youngster on loan was a key figure for Patrick Vieira’s side in the recently concluded season. In all competitions for Crystal Palace last season, he made 39 apps netting 8 goals and registering 5 assists. With his bright performances for the Selhurst Park outfit last season, he also earned his debut for England National Team. The 22 year old also scored in his very second game for the Three Lions back in March this year. England won the 2-1 against Switzerland.

Vieira’s statement handed Aston Villa transfer boost

Reports now link the Midlands club Aston Villa to sign Gallagher. Reports also mentioned that the club also called Chelsea to let them know of their interest in the player. As of now, Vieira thinks there’s no way they can get their star midfielder of last season back. He said:

“At the moment I don’t think there is any chance because he is a Chelsea player.”

“He did fantastically well for us, but he is in pre-season with Chelsea and honestly we wish him all the best. I don’t think there is a way to get him back.”

“We had a really good season last season, but we want to improve and one of the ways to do this is to improve the squad,” he said. “We are still, I believe, short in the number of players that we have. Hopefully, we will make a couple more signings that will help us to be more ambitious. I don’t want to go too much into details but we need a couple more signings and I expect us to make a couple more signings.”
