Ardrossan star Billy Gilmour has joined Premier League side Norwich City on loan.

The 20-year-old struggled for minutes at Stamford Bridge last season, despite impressing whenever he was given the chance.

He made just 11 appearances for Chelsea during the 2020/21 campaign, as he became the first North Ayrshireman to win the European Cup/ Champions League since Bobby Lennox, who was part of the Lisbon Lions in 1967.

His performances led him to be called up to the Scotland side for this summer's European Championships.

He made his international debut in a warm-up match against the Netherlands, before starring against England at Wembley and being named Star of the Match.

His joy was cut short as a positive covid test ruled him out of Scotland's final group match, which ended in defeat to Croatia.
