Paul Gallagher leaves for Leicester City

As already reported by Gavh of BlogsFC Leicester City, the Foxes have signed Rover’s Paul Gallagher for an undisclosed fee. It isn’t a surprise to see Gally leave the club after years of leaving on loan, attempting each time to come back and prove himself good enough to play Premier League football at Ewood. It is a good move for Paul, who deserves a permanent deal and a chance to prove himself, whilst Rovers need to get players off the wage bill. Especially after the signing of Michel Salgado and Nikola Kalinic.
