Crystal Palace boss Vieira: If we can bring back Gallagher…

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira says Conor Gallagher he hopes not to lose the midfieler back to Chelsea next season.

The 22-year-old is approaching the end of his loan spell in south London and claimed the Eagles’ player of the year during Tuesday’s end-of-season awards night.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s trip to Aston Villa, Vieira said on Gallagher’s future: “It’s up to Chelsea and of course the player.

“We have him for the year and we are really pleased with his contribution, he’s been terrific. Then after the season he goes back to Chelsea and the decision is Chelsea’s and Conor’s to make.

“A lot has been said already. He’s been playing I believe his best football at this club, which allowed him to go with England. It will be important for him to ask a question about what will be the next step for him and the next step may be at Chelsea because he has to go back and see how things will go for him.

“Of course we are happy and I am really pleased with the year we spent together. He’s been really good to us and we will have to wish him good luck if he goes back to Chelsea. If there’s a possibility to bring him back, we will definitely talk about it.”
