Chelsea Football Club has this evening released the following statement:
Callum is seeing a specialist this afternoon and is expected to undergo surgery on his ruptured Achilles tendon this evening.
The 18-year-old winger limped off during the first half of last night’s 2-2 draw against Burnley, his 24th Chelsea appearance of the season. He has netted five goals since making his debut for the Blues in the Community Shield against Manchester City at the beginning of the season.
Hudson-Odoi made his England debut during last month’s international break, coming off as a sub against Czech Republic before starting the 5-0 win in Montenegro.
