Borussia Dortmund

Sancho gives advice to Hudson-Odoi

11th January 2019, 15:40 by Tom McGarry

Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has offered advice to Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has been heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich.

England international Sancho took the decision to swap Manchester City for Dortmund in 2017 and he has flourished during his time in the Bundesliga, particularly this season, scoring six goals and providing seven assists to help BVB to the top of the standings.

Sancho's compatriot Reiss Nelson has also impressed during a loan spell with Hoffenheim and Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi has now emerged as the latest Englishman who could swap the Premier League for the Bundesliga.

Hudson-Odoi has been heavily linked with joining Bayern during this month's transfer window, with the Bavarians reportedly submitting four bids.

Chelsea appear keen to keep hold of the Wandsworth-born star, who may well have a decision to make over his long-term future, and Sancho has urged his compatriot to do what's best for his own career.

"Me and Callum are close friends," said Sancho, speaking from Dortmund's winter training camp in Marbella. "We've played with each other at England.

"He's the next one I would say. He's very good, very talented, fast and good dribbling skills.

"I have told him the Bundesliga is a nice league. I just told him to do whatever is best for him and whatever makes him feel comfortable."
