Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour is yet to feature for the Blues this season due to a knee injury.

The 19-year-old midfielder suffered a serious knee injury towards the end of last season, and he hasn’t been able to play again since then.

The Chelsea youngster has started training for weeks now, and Blues boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he is close to a return from injury.

“Billy is working really well,” Frank explained.

“He’s probably three or four weeks away from his return.

“He’s working outside with the physios at the moment but we hope to integrate him into training with either ourselves or the Under-21s at some point soon. We are probably looking at the other side of the next international break with Billy, all being well.”
