Glen Johnson believes Callum Hudson-Odoi should leave Chelsea this summer and has urged the winger to join a rival Premier League club.

Hudson-Odoi has made more than 100 appearances for Chelsea since breaking into the first-team in 2018 but started just 11 of the club’s 38 Premier League games last season.

The 21-year-old faces competition from the likes of Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and new £50m signing Raheem Sterling.

Former Chelsea defender Johnson believes Hudson-Odoi’s days at Stamford Bridge are numbered and says the England international should consider a move to Newcastle United.

The Magpies enjoyed a brilliant second-half to the 2021-22 campaign, pulling clear of the relegation zone and almost finishing in the top-half of the Premier League under Eddie Howe.

Asked if Hudson-Odoi should seek a move away from Chelsea this summer, Johnson told BettingOdds: ‘I’m not sure.

‘He has spells where he looks unplayable and then he has days where it looks like he shouldn’t be playing in the Premier League.

‘If he gets his head straight then I think he’s got a lot to offer but I think his days at Chelsea are over to be honest. He’s still young but for me he’s got a lot to learn.

‘He needs to play football every week so to go somewhere like Newcastle where he’s being taken out of his comfort zone to focus on his football. Maybe Newcastle will get the best out of him.

‘A loan move would possibly work if he goes somewhere to play every week. He’s got a lot to offer so Chelsea won’t want to give him up easily – that could be another one of those signings where they let him go and try and buy him back again for £100million in two years’ time.

‘To let him go on a year’s loan, or even two years, to let him learn his trade where he’s playing every single week and then call him back is better than technically throwing everything away.’
