Chelsea's Gordon open to permanent Kilmarnock move

Chelsea defender Ben Gordon says he would be happy to make a permanent move to Kilmarnock but is waiting to see what his parent club wants to do.

The 21-year old left-back joined Killie on loan in January and has done well since his move to Rugby Park, helping the club win the League Cup over Celtic in March.

Gordon feels he may not have much of a future at Stamford Bridge but says he will not make a decision until he knows more about the Blues plans.

"It's been another good six months. Winning the League Cup was great and it's been another excellent experience," he told Record Sport.

"Now I'm not too sure what is going to happen with me. My agent has a meeting with Chelsea this week to more or less see what the future holds.

"I've got one more year left on my contract and it'll be to see whether they want me to go on loan again or whether I have to go and get a permanent deal.

"I'm 21 now and want to be playing regular first-team games. I now think to myself that it's not going to happen there and they have a lot of good players too.

"Now I just need to find out the future. I haven't considered anything yet because I have not been told I can leave Chelsea, so it's down to what they say.

"If they say I've to leave, my agent will get on and see what is available. I'd consider anything to play first-team games but I know this club really well now and I don't see why that would not be an option for me."
