Callum Hudson-Odoi, a winger for Chelsea, has agreed to a loan contract with Bayer Leverkusen that will last through the end of the current campaign.
Due to a severe Achilles injury he received and Thomas Tuchel, who had previously been hired as his replacement, the England international struggled to make an impact last season.

According to Sky Sports, Hudson-Odoi is now prepared to finalise his first-ever loan move from Chelsea and is getting ready to fly to Germany to sign a deal for a full season.
Hudson-Odoi informed Chelsea he was keen to go earlier this month in an effort to obtain more consistent playing time, according to Sportsmail’s report from last week. Chelsea and Leverkusen were in talks over the loan.
Hudson-Odoi, who joined Chelsea when he was six years old, has advanced through the ranks to play 126 times for the senior team.
