Former All Leeds TV and now JustJoe Football Show presenter Joe Wainman has blasted Conor Gallagher after the midfielder opted to join Crystal Palace on a season-long loan instead of heading to Leeds United.
Gallagher was in-demand after impressing during a temporary stint at West Bromwich Albion, where he made 32 appearances last term.
Although the 21-year-old was unable to stop the Baggies suffering relegation back to the Championship, Gallagher still caught the eye of several clubs and was immediately linked with another move away from parent club Chelsea.
However, the Yorkshire club were left disappointed as Gallagher chose to join Crystal Palace instead.
Gallagher’s move to Selhurst Park comes after a summer of change at the club, with Patrick Vieira replacing Roy Hodgson as manager and several players departing.
Wainman has accused Gallagher of lacking ambition following his summer switch.
He told Football FanCast: “Missing out on Conor Gallagher was a little bit sore because I did see him as being a great Bielsa player in terms of what he can offer on the pitch.
“By all accounts, Leeds waited a month for him to come back and that was frustrating because I know how good Victor Orta is when he presents to prospective players.
“It stinks of a lack of ambition from Conor Gallagher.”
