Scotland star Billy Gilmour could end up somewhere like Leeds United next season as Chelsea look to send the 20-year-old out on loan.
Gilmour stamped himself as Scotland’s most exciting talent last week with Man of the Match display at Euro 2020, shining in the 0-0 draw with England. The midfielder has since been linked with a loan to Norwich City, but Leeds United have entered the fray.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel rates Gilmour highly and sees him as one for the future. But first-team chances on a regular basis are unlikely at Stamford Bridge this coming season and Scotland defender Liam Cooper’s Leeds United has been suggested as a potential destination.
A Chelsea source said (DR): “But there is no doubt how highly Chelsea rate Billy. If they do agree to loan him out for experience they might prefer him to be playing in the Premier League with the likes of Norwich, Wolves or Leeds United.”
