Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has been tipped for a loan move in January.
The 19-year old had a breakthrough campaign at Stamford Bridge last season, and made 11 appearances for them in all competitions, before a knee injury brought his campaign to a premature end.
He is close to a return to full fitness now but has little immediate prospect of playing for the first team given all the summer arrivals at the club, especially since they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Tottenham.
Instead he is likely to be allowed to go on loan so he can lay regular first-team football, along with other fringe players like Fikayo Tomori. The England defender came close to joining West Ham on deadline day, but then had a last-minute change of heart.
Gilmour is highly rated by Chelsea and Frank Lampard but needs to be playing regularly they believe to aid his development.
