Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has sealed a season-long loan deal to join German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

The 21-year-old has left Chelsea in search of regular game time, and will play the rest of the season in the Bundesliga.

The young winger has said he’s glad with the new experience he’s about to embark on.

“I’m definitely excited. I think it’s a new experience for me – I haven’t been anywhere else but Chelsea,” Hudson-Odoi told the official Bayer Leverkusen website.

“So coming here, I’m delighted to be here and I can’t wait to get started with the boys, get going and hopefully do well.

“The project [is attractive]. I said to the family that I want to go out there and make sure that I’m playing football and get the opportunity to play in front of great fans. It’s massive for me to come here.”

Hudson-Odoi also revealed that former Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz advised him to join Bayer Leverkusen.

“He [Havertz] told me it’s amazing, obviously, that everyone around that he’s been with the past years have been amazing for him,” Hudson-Odoi added.

“He enjoyed every moment of it and he said you’ll love it over there – just go, do you and be confident and everything will go well.”

Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes also admitted the club is happy to sign Hudson-Odoi: “We have signed a fast and penetrative winger in Callum Hudson-Odoi.

“He has everything to be able to help us immediately. 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.”
