Nottingham Forest are close to agreeing a deal to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea.

There is only the final details of the deal left to be discussed between the clubs and it is expected that the move should be completed shortly.

It is not believed that personal terms will become an issue.

Hudson-Odoi is keen to leave the Blues and only have a year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge.

The forward was part of the England U17 World Cup winning squad in 2017 when current Forest manager Steve Cooper was in charge.

Forest are also expected to complete the signing of Nuno Tavares and Murillo today.
