Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour could be allowed to leave Chelsea on loan before the transfer window shuts next week.
The 19-year-old Scot made his sixth appearance of the season in the FA Cup win over Luton Town on Sunday at Stamford Bridge and generally had an impressive game in the centre of midfield alongside Mason Mount.
However, with opportunities likely to be limited during the rest of the campaign a loan might be in his best interests in order to secure regular first-team football to aid his development.
Gilmour began his youth career with Rangers before making the trip south of the border in 2017 to join the Chelsea academy.
He is highly rated by the club, and there is no suggestion that any loan move for him would include an option to buy.
That is opposed to the case with Fikayo Tomori whose move to AC Milan has been completed, with such an option included in his loan contract.
