Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has revealed how close he is to Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has drawn massive interest from top clubs in the Premier League, especially Manchester United and Chelsea.

United are believed to be huge favourites for his signature, but Hudson-Odoi would rather have the Dortmund man move to Chelsea instead. Hudson-Odoi has revealed how close he is to Sancho and also admitted that they formed telepathy while playing over the years across the age grade group for England.

“Me and Sancho are mad close, we talk every other day, always seeing how each other are and how we’re doing,” Hudson-Odoi told Michael Dapaah.

“We make sure that we’re both doing well, obviously he’s doing amazing and having a great season.

“We’re always making sure each other is good. Obviously he’s a great player, I love playing with him – he’s a great player to play with.

“For England as well we’ve played all the way through the ages so the link up has always been there.

“I played against him sometimes in the Youth Cup games or we would play each other for England, the link up has always been there and we’ve always loved playing with each other.

“The way we play with each other we just know where each other is on the pitch every time and we just love to play with each other.

“I don’t know [if he’ll come]. Of course I would love it if he came to Chelsea. We’ve had a great partnership throughout, the way we play with each other is amazing. If he came, the link up will still be there’.”
