Billy Gilmour pushing for loan move ahead of Sunday deadline

The winter transfer window will slam shut on Sunday, and Chelsea could look to loan out one or two players before it does.

One of those could well be Billy Gilmour, with the 19-year old desperate to get more minutes so that he can make the Scotland squad for this summers Euros, according to both The Athletic and The Daily Mail.

There is no mention of anything being advanced yet, or of any of the potential clubs he could move to.

But you’d imagine talks today with Thomas Tuchel and Gilmour himself will look to conclude the situation, as I’d imagine Tuchel would need to have a say in it himself, having only arrived at the club late on Tuesday night.

The Mail do say that Gilmour’s intentions will alert a number of Premier League and top Championship clubs, and you’d imagine that Gilmour will be looking to stay local-ish.
