Chelsea finished fourth in the Premier League and won their second Champions League championship last season, with the 20-year-old making 11 appearances.

Gilmour made his international debut in the goalless draw against England at Wembley at Euro 2020, earning man-of-the-match honors in his entire Scotland debut.

He did, however, miss Scotland’s last match owing to a self-imposed self-isolation enforced after his positive COVID-19 test after their second group game.

“I’m really looking forward to being here,” the midfielder expressed his delight.

“I’m looking forward to the new season. I’ve been looking forward to coming here, playing as much as possible, and contributing to Norwich City’s Premier League ambitions.”

A conversation with Norwich head coach Daniel Farke, according to Gilmour, encouraged him to join the Canaries.

He said, “He contacted me and we had a good discussion about how he wants to play and how he sees me fitting in.”

“Everything he said on the field was exactly what I wanted to do: get the ball down and play good football.” I wanted to come here and help since he talked so highly of his team.

Chelsea see the youngster’s long-term future with the club, but consider the transfer to Norwich as the best way for him to get regular first-team action next season.

Gilmour is a “perfect fit” for Norwich, according to Farke, both as a footballer and in terms of his character.

“We’re thrilled to have Billy on board. We want to express our gratitude to Chelsea and everyone else who helped make this possible.”
