Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour impressed in midfield as Chelsea beat Luton Town 3-1 on Sunday to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has suggested the midfielder could still leave on loan in January despite his impressive performance against Luton.
Gilmour has yet to start a game in the Premier League since suffering a serious knee injury against Crystal Palace after lockdown in 2020 and it seems he might have to leave Chelsea this January to get more game time.
Lampard said: “In the short term for me, looking at things today, he won’t be going out on loan.
“Of course, we’ll keep that slightly open until the end of the month but Billy is a Chelsea player and the level he showed today highlights why he is a Chelsea player in the middle of the park.”
