Harvey Gilmour, younger brother of Chelsea footballer Billy Gilmour, has signed his first professional football contract.

The Ardrossan youngster has signed terms with Kilmarnock FC which will keep him at the club until at least 2023.

The teen has been with the Ayrshire sides youth set up for around five years before signing these professional terms.

He confirmed the deal with a post on social media, posing with his mum, dad and older brother.

Harvey said: "Delighted to have signed my first contract at Kilmarnock FC."

His father, Billy Gilmour senior, is well known for his time playing football for local clubs - including a spell managing Ardrossan Winton Rovers.

Older brother Billy junior started his youth career at Rangers before being snapped up by Chelsea.

He would go onto make several first team appearances under then manager Frank Lampard.

Following an injury and falling out of favour under new manager Thomas Tuchel, Gilmour was loaned out to Norwich City this past season.

Following the deal, Harvey will be confident of following a similar path to that of his older brother, who has a Champions League winners medal in his trophy cabinet.

Kilmarnock themselves confirmed the signing on social media yesterday, May 26, as Harvey posed with his older sibling Billy.

They said: "Congratulations to Kilmarnock youth academy's Harvey Gilmour on signing a professional deal until summer 2023.

"Featuring a very proud brother."

Harvey will most likely continue to feature for Kilmarnock's under 18/development squad this coming season, while training, and perhaps featuring, for Derek McInnes's first team side.
