Transfer: I’m happy with him – Pochettino names Chelsea star he doesn’t want sold

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has said midfielder Conor Gallagher is still in his plans at Chelsea.

This is despite multiple reports linking the England international with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

The former Tottenham boss said he is happy with the midfielder’s performance and hinted that he was not in favour of a sale.

Pochettino spoke ahead of his side’s pre-season clash against Newcastle United, stating that he was looking forward to working with the academy product.

“At the moment I am happy with him and his performance. The players that are here on the tour are in our plan. Conor is in our plans.

“I was talking to him the first day he arrived. In football things happen that we can’t manage but I am happy with his performance,” he said.

Gallagher has scored twice in Chelsea’s two pre-season matches so far.
