Conor Gallagher has indicated that he has no intention of leaving Chelsea after being linked with a late move to Tottenham.
West Ham saw a £40 million offer for Gallagher rejected by Chelsea earlier this summer and Tottenham are now considering a bid for the England international.
After he captained Chelsea to a 2-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon on Wednesday night, Gallagher made it clear that he wants to fight for his place in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
“I don’t want to stop, I want to keep improving, keep helping the club,” Gallagher said.
“It was a great moment tonight [captaining the team] and hopefully many more.
“Everyone’s playing well, obviously a lot of top midfielders [have joined the club], but I’m just playing with quite a lot of confidence at the minute, I feel fit and strong.
“It’s great to have a great squad that we have for this season, it’s really important to help us win games.
“I’m happy with how it’s going so far for myself, I want to keep improving and keep helping the team get more wins.”
