Hudson-Odoi has played just 42 minutes in the Premier League and made just seven appearances in total for Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri handed Hudson-Odoi two starts in a row in the last week in a bid to convince the teenager he should stay at Stamford Bridge.

However, parents of Chelseas youth stars are concerned there is no route for the Blues academy players to the first team.

Hudson-Odoi was denied the chance to go out on loan in the summer, but then had to wait until November to make a start for Chelsea.

The £58million signing of Christian Pulisic has also been criticised, as parents see the addition of the 20-year-old a clear indication Chelsea do not rate their own youngsters.

A host of Premier League youngsters have left Englands top clubs in search of playing opportunities, and Hudson-Odoi could join the exodus which includes former Manchester City players Jadon Sancho and Brahim Diaz.
