Chelsea star Billy Gilmour set to stay at Chelsea Billy Gilmour looked set to leave Chelsea on loan in the January transfer window but has decided a stay is preferable after assessing his options. The young Chelsea midfielder was expected to leave to seek more game time in an attempt to force his way into the Scotland squad for this summer’s Euros. Gilmour, 19, has started just three times in all competitions this season and has seen his Premier League action limited to just 34 minutes. He was enjoying a spell in the first team under previous manager Frank Lampard but a knee injury halted his progress. It was reported he had held talks with Southampton over a move to St Mary’s but unless things take a surprise turn he is now expected to remain at Stamford Bridge, according to The Athletic. While Gilmour was left out of Thomas Tuchel’s first two squads since succeeding Lampard, the midfielder feels like he will get his chance in the coming weeks. Chelsea face a busy run of fixtures as they continue to compete in the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League and Gilmour hopes that will lead to more opportunities for him. More importantly, he wants to gain a sense of where he fits into Tuchel’s plans. Rather than trying to adjust to new surroundings and impress on loan, he wants to use this period to see if he will be in Thomas Tuchel ’s plans for next season. http://nationalsportslink.com.ng Billy GilmourChelsea 0 comment 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappEmail Related Posts I’m satisfied with my party, I can’t dump PDP – Ikpeazu Breaking: Zimbabwe’s army commander dies SERAP sues Buhari over $25bn overdrafts taken from CBN Customs hands over suspect with foreign currencies concealed in diapers to EFCC Billy Joe Saunders Considering Retirement After Loss To Canelo Nigeria is in safe hands – Lai Mohammed Biden directs further investigation on COVID-19 origins Nigeria supports global action on Paris climate agreement, says Buhari Just In: Boko Haram attacks new IGP’s hometown in Yobe Mexican Open: Tennis stars Alexander Zverev and Dominik Koepfer played through an...
