Lee Bowyer is confident that Conor Gallagher will stay at Charlton – despite the Chelsea teenager recently being linked with Burnley.
The Blues midfielder, 19, has scored six goals during his loan stay in SE7.
Gallagher has been mooted as a target for Burnley when the transfer window opens next month.
Bowyer told the South London Press: “I can’t see it. We had Chelsea in last week and they said they are really happy with his progress – he is getting everything they want him to get from a loan.
“He’s playing all the time and is experiencing winning and losing. He’s experiencing everything you need to learn as a kid.
“I can’t see them taking him away.”
