Tuchel talks about Gilmour at Norwich, and when to decide if he stays

Our head coach, Thomas Tuchel, was asked recently if he is going to bring Gilmour back to Chelsea when the transfer window reopens in January, given the 20-year-old has started just five games for the Canaries so far.

‘We’ll take the decision in January, when the decision has to be made, not now,’ responded Tuchel, who revealed he had taken the chance to talk with Gilmour when he was at Stamford Bridge when we hosted Norwich. On the original decision for the player to go out on loan, he added:

‘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.
