Billy Gilmour has signed a new contract with Chelsea, the club’s official website has confirmed.

The 18-year-old Scottish midfielder who has made his professional debut with the Blues in their last Premier League game against Sheffield United has committed himself to the club until 2023.

“It’s really exciting for me and my family to sign this four-year deal with the club,” Gilmour told the club website after signing the deal.

“Frank has come in and everyone is buzzing, training is really good and there’s a high standard to everything we do.

There are exciting times ahead and hopefully I can work hard to get more opportunities as well.

“It was amazing to make my debut and for the gaffer to show his trust in me in a tight game.

A draw wasn’t the result we wanted but he showed his faith in me and I thank him for that. Now I need to make sure it wasn’t just a one-off and keep showing him I’ve got a lot more to give.”
