Billy Gilmour was linked with a deadline day move to Southampton earlier today, but according to the latest reports, he is set to stay at Chelsea for the time being.

The Saints were hoping to bring in the Scotland U21 international on loan for the remainder of the season, but Thomas Tuchel has apparently blocked off a move after being impressed with the youngster in training. Letting Gilmour depart would have meant that we would have been left with only 3 deep midfielders for 2 spots.

Similarly, Marcos Alonso appears to be on the resurgence journey after being reinstated by Tuchel into the matchday lineup yesterday, and his brilliant performance in his favored role means that the Spaniard will also stay at Chelsea and compete with Ben Chilwell for the LB/LWB spot.

Emerson and Faustino Anjorin will also stay at Chelsea and hope to impress the new manager, who has promised equal opportunities for all the players, even as we look set to compete on multiple fronts in the second half of the season.
