Lampard: Gilmour edging closer to return

Billy Gilmour could be back in action in three or four weeks, Frank Lampard has said.

The young Chelsea midfielder impressed before being sidelined by a knee injury.

Blues boss Lampard believes Gilmour could return to full training and play for Chelsea’s development side soon after next month’s international break.

“Billy is working really well,” Lampard said. “He’s probably three or four weeks away from his return.

“He’s working outside with the physios at the moment but we hope to integrate him into training with either ourselves or the Under-21s at some point soon.

“We are probably looking at the other side of the next international break with Billy, all being well.”
