Talks regarding Callum Hudson-Odoi switching international allegiance from England to Ghana have been rubbished by Simon Johnson of The Athletic.

It had previously been thought that the 20-year-old would commit his international future to Ghana over England after missing out on Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad.

However, as per Simon Johnson, there is no truth to these rumours.

Johnson said: “There is no substance to it and it won’t be happening.

“He’s only 20, has plenty of time and ability to add to his England caps.”

Hudson-Odoi fuelled speculation as he spent his summer in Ghana, where he is eligible to play due to his father being born in the country.

Nevertheless, Hudson-Odoi has made three appearances for England already, however none of these were in FIFA recognised competitions so he could still switch if he wished.

Ahead of the new season the winger is keen to impress Tuchel in pre-season and work hard to re-establish himself under the German manager.

A successful season with the Blues would likely see Hudson-Odoi return to the England setup ahead of the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
