Wed 23 June 2021 | 19:48

Newly-promoted Norwich City have opened talks to sign Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour on loan, but they may face some Premier League competition for the 20-year-old’s signature.

The Scotland international is expected to leave London Blues and spend next season on loan in search of regular game time. However, he sees his long-term future at Stamford Bridge.

Gilmour

is one of the most talented players at

Chelsea

. He impressed after breaking into the side under

Frank Lampard

during the 2019-20 season.

However, the 20-year-old wants to play regularly and Chelsea are prepared to let him join

Norwich

, who won the Championship last season.

Norwich will face competition with

Wolverhampton

over the midfielder’s signature.

The midfielder was outstanding for Scotland in their goalless draw with

England

at Wembley on Friday night, but a positive COVID-19 test ruled him out of the Group D decider against

Croatia

.

Gilmour made 11 appearances for Chelsea last season, five of which came in the Premier League.

Norwich have already signed goalkeeper

Angus Gunn

and Kosovo winger

Milot Rashica

as they prepare for the Premier League.
