Callum Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea transfer ban has worked out well

Callum Hudson-Odoi says Chelsea's transfer ban has helped the development of the club's young players.

As a result of the restrictions Chelsea have turned to youth, and the likes of Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori have been given a chance in the first team.

“I would say the transfer ban is a good thing for us because it gives more players more opportunities to play," the 18-year-old said ahead of England Under-21's games against Slovenia and Austria.

“I don't think it's really restricting anything. Even if there wasn't a transfer ban I think the young players would still be working hard and pushing in training to get a start. The manager is obviously rewarding the players depending on who's working hard, who's training well.

“It doesn't matter if you're the best in the world or the worst in the world, as long as you have the right mentality and work ethic."
