Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi has confirmed that the police will take no further action after he was arrested on suspicion of rape just last month.

The England international was arrested on suspicion of rape on May 17 after a woman he reportedly invited to his house was taken to the hospital.




Callum Hudson-Odoi was eventually released on bail, while the investigation proceeded.

The woman, who is believed to have met the Chelsea winger online, called police and ambulance services and was taken to hospital after claiming that she had been raped.




But Hudson-Odoi will now face no further action after confirming that he helped police with their enquiries on the rape allegation.

‘At a time where there are bigger things happening in the world right now, you may also be aware of serious allegations that were made against me,’ Hudson-Odoi said in a statement on Saturday.

‘I have stayed silent and assisted the police fully throughout their enquiries, as I knew the day would soon come when my name would be cleared.

‘Following a full and thorough investigation, the police have now confirmed they will take no further action.



‘I would like to use this platform to thank everyone who has stood by my side and supported me during this difficult period.

‘I have learned that being a footballer and playing for one of the best clubs in the world comes with great responsibility, and going forward I will try and use my platform as a Chelsea player to be the best role model that I can be.’
