Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour is a key player for his country Scotland and has been impressive since making his Scotland debut during the Euro 2020 Championship, but surprisingly, Gilmour couldn’t make it into the Norwich first team under Daniel Farke.

Farke had made lots of promises during the summer to get Gilmour, but relegated him to the bench shortly after snapping the talented Chelsea midfielder.

After getting four Premier League starts at the start of the campaign, Gilmour never got a nod in afterwards.

Former Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has been appointed as the new manager of Norwich City, and the new gaffer has insisted that it’s in the hands of Gilmour to fight for a place in the squad.

Asked whether Gilmour (and Todd Cantwell) will get more minutes, Smith said: “[They have] a big role [to play], along with the rest of the squad.

“It’s a new start for them in terms of a new coaching team coming in. We’ll get to see them tomorrow in training and it’s down to them to get into the team.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has also insisted that he’d wait until January before deciding whether or not to recall Gilmour from his loan spell.
