Why Callum Hudson-Odoi left Chelsea

Callum Hudson-Odoi has been discussing leaving Chelsea for Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest completed a £5million swoop for Callum Hudson-Odoi on transfer deadline day.

Hudson-Odoi was once viewed as a top-quality wonderkid and looked to have a bright future at Chelsea.

However, following transfer interest from Bayern Munich several years ago, the winger’s career has stagnated.

And under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, Hudson-Odoi was not playing and training away from the group.

He has now made a permanent move to Forest, where he will work with former England youth coach, Steve Cooper:

“It’s massive for me to be here and I can’t wait to get started,” said the player after being given the No14 shirt.

“It’s a new chapter for me. I know a couple of the boys already which was a big thing for me, and I obviously know the manager well, so it’s nice to be here and see familiar faces around.

“Forest are a big club which won two massive trophies in its history and I’m really excited to play at The City Ground. I know all about the atmosphere having watched a couple of times and I can’t wait to get playing in front of the Forest fans.”
