Talks are progressing over a move that would see Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi join Borussia Dortmund before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

Standard Sport understands that discussions are moving well regarding a deal for the Blues winger to head to the Bundesliga on a season-long loan.

The clubs remain in dialogue over what percentage of Hudson-Odoi’s wages will be paid by Dortmund and the size of the fee paid to Chelsea.

The 20-year-old initially wanted to stay and fight for his place at Stamford Bridge this summer, but has seen first-team opportunities notably limited, with Hudson-Odoi having only featured in the Uefa Super Cup win over Villarreal in Belfast so far this term.

Tuchel recently encouraged the player to remain at Chelsea and questioned his decision to refuse a call-up from Lee Carsley’s England Under-21 side.

“It’s his decision and nothing to do with my opinion or the club’s,” ex-Dortmund boss Tuchel said ahead of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

“If I speculate a little bit I think it’s about disappointment that he is not nominated for the first team, but at the same time maybe he did not have enough minutes to be nominated for the first team.

"I could see the upgrade in having some minutes and being in a leading role for the Under-21s but he decided differently so he will deal with the consequences.”
