Callum Hudson-Odoi’s representatives are still in talks with Chelsea representatives to enable him to move to Borussia Dortmund.
Sky Sports News has been told that Hudson-Odoi would be open to the move as he wants regular first-team football while also seeing his long-term future at Chelsea.
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel is reluctant to approve the loan and would prefer Hudson-Odoi to fight for his spot.
A Premier League club has requested a permanent contract for Hudson-Odoi, who has been substituted on in Chelsea’s first three Premier League games.
The 20-year-old has developed through the club’s academy but has struggled to influence the first team since signing a new five-year contract in September 2019.
Dortmund’s Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich were also keen to sign Hudson-Odoi, while Chelsea have turned down several offers from the German champions in the past.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are still hoping to sign Sevilla defender Jules Kounde after selling Kurt Zouma to West Ham for £ 29.8m, although the player’s valuation could prove a stumbling block.
