Transfer links involving three of the players linked with Norwich City during the January transfer window have moved on today.
England Under-21 midfielder Gallagher has been impressing on loan at Charlton but swaps a Championship relegation battle for a play-off chase with the Swans.
Football London had reported that Norwich, Burnley, Rangers, West Brom and Millwall were all keen on the Chelsea starlet, however earlier this week as they reported the potential for a move to Swansea, they claimed the Canaries had been ruled out as they were only interested in a permanent move.
Gallagher, 19, joins another Chelsea youngster in signing for the Swans this month. Centre-back Marc Guehi had also been linked with Norwich but will spend the remained of the campaign in South Wales.
Meanwhile, Hull forward Bowen, who has been linked with City on several occasions in recent years, looks likely to remain with the Tigers for the remainder of the season.
The 23-year-old former Manchester United trainee has scored 16 goals and assisted a further five during 27 Championship games, continuing his prolific form despite mostly playing on the right wing.
Sky Sports today report that Hull have had permanent and loan interest in Bowen but that they plan to hold on to him due to their play-off ambitions, currently sitting in 11th but just three points adrift of the top six - with Premier League rivals Newcastle also said to be interested.
It appears that Arsenal's young striker Eddie Nketiah will be joining Bristol City after all as well, with Gunners fans spotting that the player's profile on their club's official website had been updated to show the England U21 ace as being on loan with the Robins.
Norwich and Aston Villa were said to be interested in the 20-year-old, following his return from limited game time at Leeds. It seems that Bristol Post story was incorrect though, with Nketiah now seemingly set for Ashton Gate - although the move hasn't yet been confirmed.
