Athletic journalist Liam Twomey has claimed that Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher will remain at West Brom for the rest of the season. 

There has been a suggestion that Gallagher could be recalled by Frank Lampard following his impressive first half of the season in the West Midlands.

But, Twomey understands that this is not the case as he claimed Gallagher’s consistent game time has been a major factor in Chelsea’s decision.

On Wednesday, Twomey tweeted: “I’m told Conor Gallagher is expected to stay at West Brom for the rest of the season.

“He’s often stood out in a struggling team and, just as importantly from Chelsea’s perspective, the change from Slaven Bilic to Sam Allardyce hasn’t negatively impacted his minutes.”

This news comes as a huge relief to Albion fans as losing Gallagher would surely prove to be a terminal blow to our survival hopes.

Keeping Gallagher in the team has been one of the few good decisions Sam Allardyce has made during his time in the Baggies hot seat.

Though taking arguably our best player out of the team would be nothing short of moronic and Allardyce was never likely to make that call.

It doesn’t bear thinking about where we could be without Gallagher this season, especially as he played a pivotal role in our only win since getting promoted.

With all the deals that Allardyce is looking to complete this month, the best bit of business the club can do is making sure Gallagher sticks around.

We all know that after this season we won’t see him in blue and white again, or at least not the blue and white of Albion.

If we have any hope of staying in the Premier League, Gallagher has to stay.

This update will certainly calm a few nerves ahead of what will be a nervy second half of the season.

In other West Brom news, this PL defender may rip up his contract as Big Sam remains keen on bringing him to The Hawthorns.
