Chelsea to be denied Mateo Kovacic repeat as Crystal Palace and Southampton dealt blow


It means the likes of midfielder Gallagher and striker Broja, who have impressed in temporary stays at Crystal Palace and Southampton, respectively, must return to Chelsea in the summer if the club is still operating under the license.  

That deals a blow to both Palace and Southampton, who would surely have entertained trying to make permanent the deals of their Chelsea loanees. Gallagher, 21, has excelled under Patrick Vieira and his form earned him a first senior England cap in November.  

The former Charlton and West Brom loanee is understood to be keen to remain at Chelsea and prove his worth to boss Thomas Tuchel in pre-season. “We know that Chelsea is one of the best teams in the world right now. It’s a tough team to get into. But I’m not thinking about that right now,” he said earlier this campaign.
