Chelsea Football Club have reportedly rejected Crystal Palace’s appeal to have Conor Gallagher play against them in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
The English man is on loan from Chelsea to Palace but there is a clause in his contract that he can not play against his parent club. Gallagher has been a key part of Patrick Vieria’s side this season and he will be a big miss when both sides meet at the Wembley Stadium, according to reports from Goal.
The Chelsea player has played 31 games for Palace this season across all competitions and has scored eight goals and created five assists for his team. Gallagher was sent on loan during the summer transfer window to get more playing time.
He is expected to play for Chelsea at the start of next season looking at the age lf both Jorginho and N’Golo Kante who both play in the same position as Gallagher.
