Tuchel explains reason behind blocking loan deals on Chelsea duo

Tuchel reveals why Billy Gilmour and Faustino Anjorin weren’t allowed to leave Stamford Bridge.

The January transfer window was fairly quiet for the Blues apart from a few outgoings.

Both Billy Gilmour and Faustino Anjorin were linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel then revealed that he wanted the duo to continue their development at Cobham working with him.

The German coach said: “It was maybe the most comfortable transfer period in my life as a professional coach.

“I was in only a few days [before the window closed]. I was happy with every guy that was out there on the pitch, and there were no big injuries.

“So there was no need for one minute to think about bringing players in.”

He then added: “In the opposite sense, we decided to keep Tino Anjorin and Billy Gilmour with the group. Because I like a lot of what I see from the two guys.

“Billy is very, very close [to the side] in terms of quality, work ethic and personality. He is very, very close.

“So we decided very very quickly, it was not even a decision. It was simply clear that we go with this group going forward.”
