The Blues starlet is currently on loan in West Brom as he continues to impress with his England U-21 performances.

After his breakthrough in the Championship division with

Swansea

and

Charlton Athletic

,

Conor Gallagher

joined

Chelsea

at the end of the last season. He was then loaned to

West Brom

to improve his game by playing regularly in the Premier League. The young player is a favorite of Frank Lampard and his recent performance in England U21’s 3-0 win over Andorra showed his quality as a young talent with special abilities. In a post-match interview, Gallagher has spoken about his development as a player and his plans for the future.

"I will always give 100 per cent, no matter what. Whether it is West Brom or Chelsea, I will always give my best for the team,

"I am just happy to be playing in the Premier League. I am very happy at West Brom and excited to play in more games. I have started well at West Brom even though results haven't gone our way, so I just need to keep that going and stay consistent. Hopefully, the results there will then improve."

When asked about Lampard’s attention toward his development, the 20-year-old responded:

"I believe so, as people know he is a great manager even though I am not at the club. I know the guys are watching and hoping I do well."

The player is also aware that his performances in the U21s can potentially get him to the England senior team.

"It gives every young English player hope,

"[England U21 coach] Aidy [Boothroyd] said it has been 22 players in the last four years that have gone from the 21s to the seniors which is a very high number.

"So yes, to see boys like Jude go up into the seniors is great to see and it shows we are doing a good job here and gives hope. The amount of young English talent around the country is amazing.

"We have 17-year-olds to 21-year-olds in our squad and there's a lot of competition but it is all healthy. When someone wears the shirt, they have to take their chance."
