‘100% right decision’, Best news ever’- Chelsea fans rejoice over transfer update on ‘fantastic player’
There is delight among many Chelsea fans as teenage midfielder Billy Gilmour looks set to stay at Stamford Bridge despite loan interest from several Premier League clubs.
The 19-year-old seemed to be on his way out for the remainder of the season as new manager Thomas Tuchel left the midfielder out of his first two matchday squads since replacing Frank Lampard a week ago.
There was interest from Southampton and West Ham in taking Gilmour on loan, but with Chelsea’s own packed schedule, there will be a relief to see the talented Scotland under-21 international stay in west London.
Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph confirmed that the hot prospect would remain at Stamford Bridge and will be given chance to prove himself to the new manager
Unsurprisingly, plenty of the Blues’ faithful are overjoyed at the news as the adopted one of their own is set to be handed an opportunity to prove his worth to Tuchel.
We’ve gathered a pick of the reactions from Chelsea fans to the news, with one Blues supporter hailing Gilmour as a “fantastic player”…
100% right decision.
Steve Clarke. You know he's quality, just call him up man.
