Chelsea's forgotten man has been spotted training ahead of tonight's game against Southampton at Saint Mary's stadium. Billy Gilmore broke into the first team squad under Frank Lampard in the 2019/20 season but proceeded to leave for Laon the following season.
A transfer for him has been looming, but the recent gesture from Thomus Tuchel would mean that the 21-year-old midfielder will remain at Stamford Bridge this season. Gilmore has been given a squad number by the coach and he will wear jersey No.35.
With Ngolo Kante and Mateo Kovacic struggling with fitness issues, there is a scarcity of options in Chelsea's midfield. Gilmore could still be heading for a loan season, but with injuries a factor for Thomus Tuchel, having Billy Gilmore on board is a wise decision to keep the 21-year-old who has been dubbed as the Scottish Iniesta.
