Ex-Chelsea ace Billy Gilmour open to loan transfer to Europe after failing to earn game time at Brighton
BILLY GILMOUR is open to moving to a European club on loan after struggling for action since joining Brighton.
The ex-Chelsea youngster was sold to the Seagulls in the summer for a fee of around £9million.
But he has failed to establish himself in the team and he is still waiting for his first league start.
Gilmour, 21, was signed by ex-boss Graham Potter and has played just five times since his arrival on the south coast.
Brighton chief Paul Barber admitted that Potter’s exit was not ideal for Gilmour as he was a player he wanted to bring into the team slowly and new manager Roberto De Zerbi appears less keen.
SunSport exclusively revealed he only joined Brighton to work with Potter as he suited his tactics.
The Scot could therefore leave the club in January on loan.
He is open to moving away from the Premier League for regular game time and the midfielder would even consider a move to another country.
Gilmour had a tough time on loan at Norwich last season as the club were relegated but he did play 28 times.
He recently opened up admitting abuse stopped his family coming to matches at Carrow Road.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP
Moving across the continent could see him rejuvenate his career after it has stagnated in recent seasons amid big potential.
Gilmour, for now, will be hoping to force his way into the Brighton starting XI – they are back in action after the World Cup break against Charlton in the Carabao Cup.
Which could be good news for Gilmour as he started in the last round versus Arsenal.
