Crystal Palace hoping to get Conor Gallagher on loan transfer again if Chelsea steal Frenkie de Jong from Man Utd | The Sun
CRYSTAL PALACE will hold out until near the end of the transfer window to see if they can pick up a bonus loan.
The feeling at the South London club is that there could be a number of exciting players available to borrow by then as the bigger boys complete their own summer business.
Conor Gallagher, for example, is one Palace have their eye on should his game time be further impacted at Chelsea if Frenkie de Jong arrives from Barcelona.
England midfielder Gallagher, 22, shone on loan at Selhurst Park last season, netting eight goals and grabbing three assists in the Premier League.
It is believed Eagles chief Patrick Vieira would be interested in borrowing him again should the chance arise.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is another Chelsea player and former Palace loanee who may be of interest if the Blues are willing to farm him out.

But SunSport understands Palace are not interested in borrowing Gallagher and Loftus-Cheek’s club-mate Callum Hudson-Odoi.
While a move to bring back academy product Aaron Wan-Bissaka on loan from Manchester United looks increasingly unlikely, following the arrival of Chris Richards from Bayern Munich.
Palace feel they have enough cover at right-back now with Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Ward, Nathan Ferguson and Richards.
A new striker is also not thought to be on the agenda, despite Christian Benteke moving to DC United, the MLS side managed by Wayne Rooney.
