Billy Gilmour has proven that he has a bright future ahead of him, although the big question at hand is when he’d be able to break into the Chelsea first team.

The 20-year-old has a massive reputation for his age and has been in and around the Chelsea first team, especially under former boss Frank Lampard.

The man hailed as the Scottish Iniesta has sealed a loan move to Norwich ahead of the 2021-22 season.

However, Liverpool legend Graeme Souness believed Gilmour should have stayed and fought for his place at Stamford Bridge. But Blues hero Pat Nevin believes Gilmour made a good choice as well.

“Billy obviously going out on loan, he’ll get a lot more football,” said the Blues legend.

“His future at Chelsea is gigantic. To be honest, there is no right or wrong.

“There are two different arguments. There’s the Phil Foden argument i.e. you stay put and you’ll learn off great players around you.

“The other argument is the Mason Mount argument; I’ll go out on loan and learn your trade when you’re out there.

“There’s no right or wrong, there are just two different methods. It may come down to what the player wants.

“If it were me, in the time, I would have gone out on loan personally. You just want to play football.”
