Some Chelsea fans were left very impressed with what they saw from Callum Hudson-Odoi on his debut for his new club yesterday.

Many took to Twitter to express their praise for the winger, as well as ask questions as to why he was let go.

It was one of the best known secrets of the window that Hudson-Odoi was going to be on the move this summer away from Stamford Bridge.

He was handed one last chance to prove his worth on loan at Bayer Leverkusen last season, however he failed to show that he looked as if he was getting back to the quality required.

After a window of teams certainly not rushing to sign him, he eventually joined Forest for a minuscule fee compared to what had been discussed years ago.

Last night saw him make his first start for his new side, and he didn’t take long to prove there was certainty still something there as far as he is concerned.
