Blackburn To Bid For Sam Gallagher
Friday, 5th Jul 2019 13:48
Sky Sorts sources are saying that after being in talks for a week, Blackburn Rovers will submit a formal bid for Sam Gallagher.
Blackburn are of course a club whom Gallagher played on loan for in 2016/17 and they are keen to take him back to Ewood Park, they are facing pressure though from near neighbours Wigan Athletic and Saints will hope that pushes up the price a little.
Sky say that Saints are open to offers starting at £5 million and although that is not great in the grand scheme of things, it will all add up when some of the other fringe players are sold.
Despite Saints striking issues Gallagher had little opportunity to show what he could do last season, in the Premier League he made only 4 appearances, all as sub totalling only 32 minutes, with only his 23 minute spell at Brighton April being significant game time.
It was not much better in the cups with two sub appearances, one in each competition being his total, although against Derby in the FA Cup replay he did get the bonus of 30 minutes extra time.
Saints fans will wish him all the best and thank him for his career Saints total of 3 starts plus 19 as sub in the Premier League plus another 4 sub appearances in both domestic cups, with a total of 2 goals from those games, 1 in the Premier league.
But the truth is that he needs to get away from Saints to make his mark, I stand by what I said recently that he might yet succeed at the highest level and that a clean start at somewhere like Blackburn might just be the catalyst he needs for a successful top flight career to be kick started.
At 23 turning 24 in September he has time on his side.

Apologies all, it’s been quite a hectic week at work so this one had to wait until today I’m afraid. I’m off to the New Lawn after this, so looking forward to seeing Noah and anyone else when I get there.
