Whilst not having a good season at 20th place Norwich, Gilmour played over 1,800 minutes for The Canaries but could not find any form and being on the receiving end of 19 defeats in the 24 he played, the young midfielder could look to rebuild his confidence under Frank Lampard and look to improve the Everton squad.
