Callum Hudson-Odoi is excited to get going at Nottingham Forest after signing from Chelsea on deadline day.

Hudson-Odoi, 22, leaves the Blues having made 126 appearances for the club and was part of the Champions League winning squad in 2021.

Forest's new addition has put pen to paper on a three-year-deal and will wear the No14 shirt. 

He said: "It's massive for me to be here and I can't wait to get started. It's a new chapter for me. 

"I know a couple of the boys already, which was a big thing for me, and I obviously know the manager well, so it's nice to be here and see familiar faces around. 

"Forest are a big club that won two massive trophies [the European Cup] and I'm really excited to play at the City Ground. 

"I know all about the atmosphere having watched a couple of times and I can't wait to get playing in front of the Forest fans."

Three-cap England international Hudson-Odoi spent last season on loan and Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, where he made 21 appearances.

The Londoner took to Instagram to say farewell to his old club.

He said: "The time has come for me to bid Chelsea farewell. 

"For the longest time, Chelsea has been my home. I spent the best part of my childhood, teenage years and early manhood wearing a Chelsea shirt. 

"My best memories will always be playing in front of you all at Stamford Bridge. 

"I will embark on this new pathway. But before I do, I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that has been a part of my journey and to everyone that has supported me so far. Until we meet again."

Hudson-Odoi has proven he can perform in the Premier League with 15 goal contributions in 72 appearances for Chelsea.

He looks a likely replacement for Brennan Johnson, who is believed to be on the verge of securing a move to Tottenham.
