Maurizio Sarri confirms winger can leave in January

England and Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi will get a chance to get more game time elsewhere in January, says outlet Calcio Mercato.

The 19-year-old is gradually fading out in Sarri’s plans and a move in January has been tipped to happen.

Topping the rumour pile is that the England international will be allowed to depart the club on a season-long loan deal to keep his flames burning.

Hudson-Odoi managed to clasp a spot in Sarri’s team-sheet after a healthy run in the World Cup for England. The Italian named the youngster in their 2-0 defeat to table toppers Manchester City in August, in the Community Shield.

Hudson-Odoi lasted until the hour mark of the game before he was replaced.

Since getting a shot at starting for the first team in August, the Wandsworth native hasn’t bagged a chance.

Sarri’s introduction has swelled fierce rivalry in Stamford Bridge, creating some sort of healthy competition between players, making it difficult for Hudson-Odoi to break ranks.

Hudson-Odoi has received four call ups for England U19 side, and in those occasions racked up two goals for himself.

Hudson-Odoi could be shipped to Europe where a large part of the west Londoners’ youngsters  are nursing their talents.
