‘Things are not going as he wishes for’: Tuchel hints at recalling Gilmour in January
Billy Gilmour was loaned out to Norwich City this season in hope that he would get more playing time and develop into a better player.
However, he has played only 458 minutes for Norwich this season with only 4 appearances in the Premier League.
Asked to comment on the decision to bring him back in January, Thomas Tuchel told Chelseafc.com: “We’ll take the decision in January, when the decision has to be made, not now.
“The things were clear when we decided together that he is looking for more minutes and more game time in another club. The challenge was clear that he needs to fight his way through.
“Right now things are not going as he maybe wishes and we all wish for, but now is not the moment to already give solutions and cancel the whole project.
“For me right now it is not the moment to already give solutions for January and open the talks to bring him back. Now it is November and there is still a lot of time to prove that he has enough quality to help Norwich to be a better team.”
While a final decision has not been made yet, if Gilmour doesn’t get more chances under Norwich’s new manager, it’s likely that Chelsea decide to call him back in January
