But Crystal Palace have been long term admirers of the England under-21s international and Gallagher is set to to join the Eagles under new boss Patrick Vieira according to reports, despite the interest from Leeds and also Newcastle United.

Gallagher has spent the last two seasons away from Stamford Bridge on loan at Charlton Athletic and Swansea City in the Championship before last season’s stint in the Premier League at West Brom.

Erling Haaland shows love for Leeds (again)

Erling Haaland’s love for Leeds United is no secret - and now the striking sensation has been pictured wearing the club’s gear.

Leeds-born Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland has previously spoken about his passion for the club that represents the city of his birth.

Haaland’s dad Alf-Inge spent three years with the Whites between 1997 and 2000 - the year in which Erling was born.

Twenty one years later, the Norwegian international striker is one of the hottest properties in football and one who has been pictured by a TikTok user signing autographs from his car whist wearing Leeds United shorts.
