Chelsea FC and Bayer Leverkusen FC have reached an agreement on a season-long loan of English forward Callum Hudson-Odoi to the Bundesliga club.

A media report on Monday indicated that the deal does not include a purchase option and that the 21-year-old was expected in Leverkusen for the mandatory medical later in the day.

The move had been in danger of collapsing due to a disagreement over these considerations.

Bayer Leverkusen wanted to include a buy-option and Chelsea were not wanting to entertain losing Hudson-Odoi for good just yet.

Hudson-Odoi, by way of his representatives, managed to convince Bayer Leverkusen to drop their demand for one and thus come to an agreement.

The club’s sports director, Simon Rolfes, had already hinted at the transfer when he said they wanted a new winger after Karim Bellarabi and Armine Adli got injured.(dpa/NAN)
