It was previously thought that the Hudson Odoi would commit his international future to Ghana over England after missing out on Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad.

However, as per Simon Johnson, there is no truth to these rumours.

Johnson said: “There is no substance to it and it won’t be happening.

“He’s only 20, has plenty of time and ability to add to his England caps.”

The young Chelsea winger fuelled speculation as he spent his summer in Ghana, where he is eligible to play due to his father being born in the country, however he will not yet make the decision to switch allegiances.

Hudson-Odoi has made three appearances for England already, however none of these were in FIFA recognised competitions so he could still switch if he wished.

A successful season with the Blues would likely see Hudson-Odoi return to the England setup ahead of the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.

What Hudson-Odoi has said about his future?

Speaking on the official Chelsea Mike’d Up Podcast, he said, as quoted by football.london: “It [the last couple of years] has been a roller-coaster.

“There have been a lot of ups, downs as well. But at the end of the day, I’ve got to take everything in my stride and take it on as a learning curve. I think to myself that any situation, good and bad, has to be taken positively.”
