Callum Hudson-Odoi has stated that Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper influenced his choice to join the City Ground.

On the final day of the summer transfer window, the winger completed a move from Chelsea.

Hudson-Odoi was linked with Fulham and Crystal Palace after returning from a loan spell at Bayer Leverkusen last season.

However, after winning the U17 World Cup under former England youth manager Cooper in 2017, the 22-year-old chose to go to Nottingham.

‘There were a number of alternative places I could have ended up at, but once ‘Coops’ made the call, my head was straight here,’ Hudson-Odoi told The Telegraph.
