Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour has a huge potential to be one of the best central midfielders in the game, but the 20-year-old Scotsman seems to be stuck at the moment.

Gilmour left Chelsea on loan to join Norwich for the rest of the year, but it so far hasn’t worked for him at the Canaries.

Daniel Farke signed up the young midfielder on loan from Chelsea and made so much promises to him, only to dump him on the Norwich bench at an important stage of his career development.

Chelsea boss was asked if the club will make a decision to bring back Gilmour in January, but the German insisted that we wait until then.

“We’ll take the decision in January, when the decision has to be made, not now,” responded Tuchel.

“The things were clear when we decided together that he is looking for more minutes and more game time in another club. The challenge was clear that he needs to fight his way through.

“Right now things are not going as he maybe wishes and we all wish for, but now is not the moment to already give solutions and cancel the whole project.

“Sometimes these weeks and months arrive when the situation seems to be stuck or it seems not to go the right way. You have to hang in there, you have to show your quality and you have to make sure you help your team, no matter where it is. That sharpens your character. That will be making a big chapter in your career.

“For me right now it is not the moment to already give solutions for January and open the talks to bring him back. Now it is November and there is still a lot of time to prove that he has enough quality to help Norwich to be a better team.”

Daniel Farke has been sacked as Norwich manager, and the Blues technical team will watch out for what happens under the new manager.
