OVERVIEW OF: Chelsea Midfielder Gilmour Joins Norwich City On Loan
Scottish midfielder Billy Gilmour has joined newly promoted Norwich City on a season-long loan from Chelsea
The Champions League holders announced the loan move on their official website on Friday.
Gilmour, 20, made 11 appearances for Chelsea last season and started only three league games.
The former Rangers youth player was an unused substitute in both the FA Cup and Champions League finals.
Thomas Tuchel’s side lost the domestic showpiece to Leicester City but beat Manchester City in Portugal to lift European football’s biggest club prize.
“I’ve been looking forward to coming here, playing as much as possible and helping Norwich City compete in the Premier League,” said Gilmour.
“I spoke to the head coach [Daniel Farke]. 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 here and help.”
Gilmour was part of the Scottish side that failed to progress beyond the group stage of the on-going European Championship.
