Sam Gallagher has taken to Twitter to send a message to Southampton following his move to Blackburn Rovers.

As announced on Blackburn’s official website, Rovers have signed Gallagher from Premier League outfit Southampton on a permanent contract.

 

The 23-year-old striker had a loan spell at Ewood Park from the Saints during the 2016-17 campaign.

According to LancsLive, Rovers paid Saints a transfer fee of £5 million in order to secure the services of the striker in the summer transfer window.

The former England Under-20 international has taken to Twitter and Instagram to send an emotional message to Southampton, and he is also looking forward to playing for Blackburn Rovers.

Good decision?

Gallagher had been on the books of Southampton since 2012, but the youngster had struggled to establish himself in the Saints’ first team.

The 23-year-old had loan spells at Milton Keynes Dons, Blackburn and Birmingham City since 2015, and it made sense for the striker to leave the St. Mary’s Stadium on a permanent contract.
