Chelsea wonderkid Conor Gallagher admits he would be ‘gutted’ if the EFL made the 2019/20 season null and void – as there would be no record of his senior debut.
The 20-year-old academy product has spent the current campaign on loan in the Championship, starting at Charlton Athletic before making a January switch to play-off hopefuls Swansea City.
Out of all the current loanees, Gallagher has impressed the most with six goals and another seven assists from midfield.
Gallagher is in his first season at senior level, however those statistics are now under threat with the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
