Chelsea and England Winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has joined Bayer 04 Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga on loan for the 2022/2023 football season.
The out of favor player has not made a single appearance for Chelsea this season having made 15 premier league appearances last season.
Recall that German champions Bayern Munich had a £35m bid for Hudson-Odoi turned down in 2019.
The 21 year old who has only been capped 3 times by England has been mooted to be out of his way from Chelsea all summer either on loan or permanent transfer.
We have signed a fast and penetrative winger in Callum Hudson-Odoi. He has everything to be able to help us immediately,” commented sporting managing director Simon Rolfes and continued:
“Callum has played over 100 games for Chelsea and proven himself in the Premier League as well as in the Champions League. This will give our attacking game another special component. We’re very happy this transfer has gone through.”
Hudson-Odoi, who is capable of playing on either wing and in attacking midfield, stated:
“The move to Germany is really exciting for me and I can play in the Champions League with Bayer 04 Leverkusen. That combination is really attractive and I’m keen to get to know the club, the fans and the Bundesliga. Kai Havertz only had good things to say about it to me in the Chelsea dressing room.”
