Chelsea boss Potter has sympathy for Gilmour after Brighton move

Chelsea boss Graham Potter says he feels for Billy Gilmour over the timing of his sale to Brighton.

The Scot moved to Brighton with the aim of working with Potter, but the pair barely crossed paths as the manager leaving for Gilmour's former club.

Potter said, "The uncomfortable thing about it is the timing of my opportunity here.

"So close after the transfer window had closed is never ideal, but it is part of life and part of football.

"I wish him [Gilmour] well and my first impressions of him is he is a top, top lad and we know the talent he has, so hopefully he will do well there."
