Chelsea fans look a tad disappointed here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from Metro.
The publication seem to think that the Blues have missed out on one of their targets – a potential star of the future in the form of Southampton’s Sam Gallagher.
The young player has committed his future to the high flying side from the south coast – for now – and it seems Chelsea will have to watch him develop from afar.
Gallagher spoke after putting pen to paper on his new deal and noted: “It’s been a big year for me and this just tops it off.
“This time last year I’d have never really thought I’d be getting this contract, but this gives me that bit of security so I know that, if I can keep going, the club will repay me.”
Of course our punters make the valid point that Chelsea are not exactly known for giving young talent a chance and it seems a wise move from Gallagher to stay at St. Mary’s for now – and then seek a big move once he has that first team experience under his belt.
Do you think penning a new deal with the Saints is a good move by Gallagher? Let us know your thoughts below.
