Callum Hudson-Odoi injury latest: Chelsea youngster expected to undergo surgery on ruptured Achilles this evening, says club

Callum Hudson-Odoi will have surgery on a ruptured Achilles which ruled him out for the rest of the season.

The Chelsea winger, 18, suffered the injury during their 2-2 draw at home to Burnley on Monday night and is expected to have an operation on Tuesday evening.

“Callum is seeing a specialist this afternoon and is expected to undergo surgery on his ruptured Achilles tendon this evening,” said a club statement.

It means he will miss the club’s remaining fixtures as they bid to secure a top four spot and also win the Europa League.

He will also miss England’s Nations League finals this summer after making his debut last month.
