West Ham United boss David Moyes has showered praises on Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour for his outstanding performances for Chelsea before the break.

Gilmour won two successive man of the match award against Liverpool in the FA Cup and Everton in the Premier League.

A delighted West Ham manager David Moyes who watched from his television says the 18-year-old is a player he wishes he could sign.

“The one [Scottish player] who if I could sign tomorrow I would is Billy Gilmour after his opening performances for Chelsea,” he said on BBC Scotland’s Scottish football podcast, captured by Sportslens.

“He’s looked like a seasoned pro, he’s looked like somebody who’s hungry, who’s in love with the game.

“He’s typical of what my memories are of what Scottish players were like going back many, many years. We were always good players, really talented football players, and at the moment Billy Gilmour in the short period I’ve seen him has looked like that all day long.

“We need to start getting a Scottish national team that gives us some hope, but he’s certainly a really talented looking player.

When Moyes was asked about Chelsea's interest in West Ham's midfielder Declan Rice, he said: “I was laughing because I keep getting told that Chelsea want Declan Rice, so I thought well I might just decide I want Billy Gilmour and see how it goes.”

Despite Moyes claims, Chelsea will do all they can to keep their latest star, Billy Gilmour even if it means missing out on Declan Rice.
