Chelsea fans left stunned after exciting Premier League star told to make January move
Kevin Phillips has told Chelsea starlet Billy Gilmour to cut short his spell at Norwich in favour of a January loan move to Leeds United.
Gilmour made seven Premier League appearances for Chelsea last season, but struggle to break into new manager Thomas Tuchel’s plans towards the end of the campaign and as a result, the Scotland international was sent out on loan to the Canaries in the summer.
And since his move to Norwich, he has shone in the Premier League and there is alot of interest in his services, with many believing that he could go on to become a top level Premier League star
Now former Premier League striker Phillips believes that Gilmour should leave Norwich in favour of a move to a more stable team: ‘Gilmour hasn’t got much game time under his belt, and I can’t see why with where Norwich are in the league. There’s no point in him going back to Chelsea because he will hardly play,’ he told Football Insider.
‘He should go back out on loan to somewhere like Leeds. [Marcelo] Bielsa plays good football, they aren’t rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, and he will probably get more game time.
‘Leeds play more of the type of football Gilmour is suited to, so it would be a great move for him.
‘We’ve seen Bielsa get the best out of some youngsters and there’s no reason why he couldn’t do that with Gilmour.
‘His next move has to be to go somewhere where he will play because we don’t want a young player completely disappearing.’
Gilmour has shown that he has real quality and i am sure that there will be alot of interest in his services at the end of the season. But for now, he should stay put and get the game time he has been looking for
