Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to remain at Chelsea after the club were unwilling to sanction a loan move to Borussia Dortmund.
Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Hudson-Odoi was open to the move as he wanted regular first-team football, while still seeing his long-term future at Chelsea.
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel was reluctant to sanction the loan and his preference was always for Hudson-Odoi to stay and fight for his place.
A Premier League club made an enquiry about a permanent deal for Hudson-Odoi, who was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s opening three Premier League games.
The 20-year-old has developed through the club’s academy but has struggled to make an impact in the first team since signing a new five-year deal in September 2019.
