DONE DEAL!! Norwich Sign Chelsea Star Billy Gilmour (See Details)July 2, 2021
Norwich City have signed Scotland midfielder Billy Gilmour on a season-long from Chelsea.
The 20-year-old impressed for Scotland in a goalless draw against England at Euro 2020 on 18 June.
He tested positive for Covid-19 after the game and has completed the move following a period of self-isolation.
“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 made 11 appearances for Chelsea last season and started only three league games.
