Chelsea wonder Callum Hudson-Odoi urged to seek move away by Gabby Agbonlahor
TalkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor has urged Chelsea wonder Callum Hudson-Odoi to seek a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
The 21-year-old has failed to fully establish himself in the Chelsea first team and the Blues signing a player of that calibre will surely push the winger further down the pecking order.
The former Aston Villa attacker has advised the England under-21 international to move to the North East, according to the Chronicle Live.
Agbonlahor said: “I think Sterling is a great signing, but Hudson-Odoi is another great player who probably wants to start playing more.
“He’s in and out of the team and with Sterling coming in, he’s not going to get a chance this season.
“He is a very talented player but he just needs to be playing games.”

Needs a move?
Hudson-Odoi may need a move to reignite his career after the hype around him has begun to stagnate in recent years.
The young winger exploded onto the scene in 2018, making his Premier League debut at the age of 18, exciting fans with his flair and his energy.
He has now made 126 appearances for his club, scoring 17 goals and providing 22 assists since making his debut four years ago.
However, despite this large total of appearances, the youngster has just scratched the surface of what he could potentially achieve with his potential.
The winger, who is also of Ghanian descent, has never really been able to string a consistent run in the first team and this has also cost him opportunities on the international front as well with England’s senior team.
This task becomes even harder with a player of the calibre of Raheem Sterling soon to touch down in London, with Hudson-Odoi expected to see less game-time as a result of the England international’s arrival.
A may move away from Chelsea may be exactly what his career desperately needs.
