'Gutted we missed out': Some Leeds fans hail £17k-a-week man's display today
Some Leeds United fans have praised Conor Gallagher’s latest Premier League display, while also wishing they’d managed to sign him.
In July, football.london claimed that the Whites spoke with the Chelsea midfielder over a prospective loan move.
Leeds reportedly put together an impressive presentation to try to convince Gallagher to head to Elland Road.
However, the same report also claimed that Gallagher had agreed to join Crystal Palace on loan, which turned out to be the case.
The England Under-21 ace has impressed at Selhurst Park and was unplayable in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Spurs.
He was a constant thorn in the opposition’s side, won the penalty for Palace’s opening goal and set Odsonne Edouard up for his second.
Needless to say, some Leeds fans are gutted their club missed out on the £17,000-a-week ace:
Good God Gallagher would have been absolutely perfect. Such a shame, he would have been the perfect long term development of the midfield. Someone like him should be playing week in week out though. You can understand the Palace choice. #LUFC— 𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙤𝙧 𝙈𝙘𝙂𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙜𝙖𝙣 🎙📻 (@ConorMcGilligxn) September 11, 2021
Gallagher is unreal, think he’s a bit of doughnut tbh not coming Leeds he’s a energetic high press midfielder exactly what we needed Bielsa could have done wonders for him— Harry Payne (@Lufc_arry) September 11, 2021
