Chelsea boss Tuchel blocks Hudson-Odoi move to Dortmund

Chelsea have blocked Callum Hudson-Odoi's proposed loan move to Borussia Dortmund.

The Bundesliga side have been keen to sign the Blues wonderkid, and were willing to promise him regular game time in his preferred left wing position.

But the Athletic reports Chelsea feel that Hudson-Odoi's versatility makes him too important an option to lose - despite his lack of first-team action.

Winger Hudson-Odoi started the Blues' narrow Uefa Super Cup triumph over Villarreal earlier this month.

But he has not been handed any action at all in the Premier League this term - being named as an unused substitute in each of Chelsea's three games so far.

Manager Thomas Tuchel believes that Hudson-Odoi provides good cover as a wing-back, wide man and No10.
