Ex-youth coach says Norwich good move for Chelsea midfielder Gilmour

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour's former youth coach at Rangers says Norwich City is a good loan move for him.

Ricky Waddell was Gilmour's coach at Rangers and oversaw his development at U16 level.

He told the Pink'Un: "Chelsea obviously rate him very highly and it's been thought through.

"Norwich play a style of football that's very conducive to Billy and it's going to demand him getting on the ball all the time.

“The fact that he might be put in a situation where Norwich might be up against it in some games whereas with Chelsea, nine times out of ten, you're probably dominating possession of the football so it will give him different aspects, maybe similar to playing with Scotland.

“For his own development as a professional footballer at the top level, I think it's a great move and I'm really excited to see him and see how he gets on.

"I've got no doubt that if he keeps injury free, that he will kick on and add to the Norwich City team. He will help it progress for sure."
