Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has joined Norwich City on a season-long loan
After making his first-team debut in a Premier League draw with Sheffield United in August 2019, Gilmour has made 22 senior appearances for the club. Now 20, the time is right for him to get many more games under his belt.
He would not be guaranteed the football that he desires under Thomas Tuchel, as the German has a number of top-class players in that position already, and may look to bring in a few more in the coming months.
And after agreeing his loan move to Norwich, Gilmour has opened up and admitted just how delighted he is to have agreed the move, he told the official club website: “I’m very excited to be here. I can’t wait for the season ahead. I’ve been looking forward to coming here, playing as much as possible and helping Norwich City compete in the Premier League.
“I spoke to the head coach here. He called me and we had a nice talk about how he wants to play and how he sees me fitting in. Everything he said was what I want to do on the pitch, get the ball down and play nice football. He spoke really highly of his team and I wanted to come join here and help.
“There are very exciting times ahead, coming in for pre-season and seeing all the lads. Let’s get to it.”
There are many fans out there that hoped Gilmour would be given some more game time over the next couple of months of the new season, as he clearly has alot of talent, but at the end of the day, this is the right move for the lad.
