Chelsea have opted to trigger a one-year extension to keep Billy Gilmour at the club until 2024.

Gilmour joined from Rangers in 2017 and broke through under Frank Lampard, making his debut for the Blues in August 2019 against Sheffield United.

The Scotland international racked up just 192 Premier League minutes in the 2019-20 season, before playing 259 top-flight minutes across his five league appearances the next campaign.

Battling against N'Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek for a place in the starting XI, Gilmour was sent on loan to Norwich City in the 2021-22 season.

The 21-year-old managed 24 Premier League outings for the Canaries, 21 of those starts, and gained vast experience as he featured for 1,858 league minutes as Norwich were relegated back to the Championship.

While Thomas Tuchel's plans for the midfielder remain unclear, with returning loanee Conor Gallagher another potential contender for a place in the Chelsea team, the Blues have extended Gilmour's contract.

He initially signed a four-year deal when arriving from Rangers but, with that due to expire in 2023, the Blues have added another year as Gilmour looks to make his mark at Stamford Bridge.
