As confirmed and announced on the official website, Chelsea have exercised the club option in Billy Gilmour’s contract, extending his contract by an additional year, until 2024.
Gilmour spent last season on loan at Norwich City, and while that could have yielded better results for both him and the team that finished dead last in the Premier League, he still managed to show his (great) talent in 28 appearances across all competitions, including 24 in the league. On top of that, he established himself as a staple of the Scotland national team, with 14 caps in the last twelve months.

Gilmour joined Chelsea in 2017 from Rangers’ academy in Scotland, and made his professional debut against Sheffield United a couple years later. He would go on to make 17 appearances under manager Frank Lampard from 2019 to 2021, and 5 more under Thomas Tuchel. Here’s to many more in the future!
