Bayer Leverkusen ‘have agreed to hire Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi for a season’ with the England star ‘flying to Germany for a medical check’ after becoming frustrated with lack of action at Stamford Bridge
- Bayer Leverkusen reportedly agreed to contract Callum Hudson-Odoi on loan
- The Chelsea winger struggles to break into Thomas Tuchel’s first team
- Hudson-Odoi flies to Germany to seal his move to the Bundesliga
Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly set to seal a transfer to Bayer Leverkusen after the Bundesliga signed a deal until the end of the season.
The England international has faced difficult opportunities since he overcame a crippling Achilles tendon injury he sustained last season and Thomas Tuchel has found no room for the 21-year-old after signing Raheem Sterling.
Now Hudson-Odoi is poised to complete his first-ever loan from Chelsea and is about to fly to Germany to put pen to paper for a season deal, according to Air sports.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has found no room in his side for Hudson-Odoi since recovering from an Achilles tendon injury
Sports post reported last week how Chelsea and Leverkusen were in talks about the loan – and Hudson-Odoi informed Chelsea earlier this month that he would like to leave in a bid to get more regular football.
At one point in 2020, the 21-year-old was chased by Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich, but Chelsea turned down the club’s offers and instead extended the player’s contract.
Now, however, it seems that Hudson-Odoi is going to light the fields in Germany after all.

Hudson-Odoi, who joined Chelsea at the age of six, has moved up to 126 senior appearances.
He had his best spell at Stamford Bridge under Frank Lampard, who was eager to give opportunities to the club’s young English stars.
He made 33 appearances in the 2019-20 season when the club legend arrived – scoring three goals – and 37 times the following season, scoring five times.
But in the 2021-22 season, he saw his playing time limited to 28 games as he struggled with injuries.
