Villa open Gallagher discussions

Aston Villa have opened discussions with Chelsea over the transfer of England midfielder Conor Gallagher.

Chelsea have made it known that they are open to offers for a player who has one year left on his contract, and whom they have been unable to tie down to a new deal.

The West London club are keen to strike any early deal because of their need to meet the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability rules. As Gallagher is an academy product, any sale will count as pure profit in accounting terms.

Tottenham Hotspur have long had an interest in the player as well, which may lead to a bidding war.

Villa do have the advantage of being able to offer the midfielder Champions League football next season and the fact that Chelsea fans will not want to see him join their hated London rivals.
