The 20-year-old has agreed to a season loan with Daniel Farke’s team in search of regular minutes with the main team.
He signed with Chelsea Rangers in 2017, made his way through the academy at Cobham and burst onto the stage last year after his brilliant 2-0 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup.
After warming up the bench before the long period of Thomas Tuchel’s reign at Stamford Bridge, the young Scotsman will remain in the Premier League and develop further, gaining minutes in the first team.…
After confirming the credit change, several Chelsea stars wished Gilmore all the best for his next Instagram chapter, including Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ben Chilwell and Tammy Abraham.
The trio was joined by blues legend John Terry and, interestingly, West Ham star Declan Rice, who was closely associated with the transition to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks.
Gilmore made 14 trips to all competitions for the London team last season, with players such as N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho often getting approval in the middle of the park.
After several high-profile performances at the academy, Gilmore was promoted to the first team by former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
However, by the end of the 2019/20 campaign, he suffered a serious knee injury, which resulted in him spending four months on the sidelines. He quickly returned from injury last November, appearing several times in the Champions League group stage.
A gifted midfielder like anyone of his age, Gilmore will thrive at Norwich and may fight for a spot on the main team when he returns from loan next summer.
