Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour kicks off preseason with Glenafton

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has kicked off his preseason in Scotland.

The 21-year-old Ayrshireman is back at the family home in Ardrossan for the summer and he's keeping himself in shape by attending training with Glenafton.

The West of Scotland Premier League side shared an image on their social channels of Gilmour clad in a Glenafton top with manager Ryan Stevenson, himself a former Chelsea youngster.

Gilmour, who spent last season at Norwich, has been linked with a loan move to Everton from Chelsea this season.

He has been spotted at Loch Park in the past cheering on old pals - while his younger brother Harvey has signed his first pro deal with Kilmarnock.

A spokesperson wrote: "Earlier tonight, we were delighted to welcome Champions League winner, Chelsea player and Scotland internationalist Billy Gilmour to our second session of pre season training.

"This session was geared towards raising the fitness levels of the players for the upcoming season, and we hope the fitness work will be of great assistance to our players and Billy before he returns shortly to Chelsea to start their pre-season preparations.

"Billy is a regular at our games whenever he is back in Scotland and everyone at the club would like to wish Billy all the best for the upcoming season with Chelsea."
