Return date set for Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is hoping to return from an Achilles injury by August.

The 18-year-old suffered a serious Achilles injury against Burnley in April.

An initial prognosis ruled out Hudson-Odoi out until September at the very earliest.

However, the England international has been given permission to increase his training load by Barcelona-based surgeon Ramon Cugat.

The Daily Mail says Hudson-Odoi's Achilles has fully healed which has pushed forward his return schedule.
