Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour will travel to Norfolk on Thursday to seal a season long loan move to Norwich City.

Sky Sports News suggest his medical will take place within 24 hours of ending his self-isolation period, after being diagnosed with Covid-19 at Euro2020.

Gilmour had to miss Scotland's final group game following a starring role in a 0-0 draw with England at Wembley.

City have identified the 20-year-old as a high profile central midfield addition for the Premier League return.

Daniel Farke previously worked closely with Thomas Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund and the Chelsea boss has sanctioned a spell in Norfolk for the talented Scot.

Barring any last minute hitches, confirmation of Gilmour's move to the Canaries is expected prior to the weekend.

City have already brought in Milot Rashica and Angus Gunn for the top flight push.
