Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has confirmed that police will take no further action over a rape allegation against him.
Hudson-Odoi,19, was arrested and questioned last month having invited a glamour model to his flat during the coronavirus lockdown.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, Hudson-Odoi stated that a full investigation had now been completed.
Police have told the Blues ace that no further action will be taken.
A statement posted on his Twitter read: “At a time when there are bigger things happening in the world right now, you may also be aware of the serious allegations that were made against me.
“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.”
Hudson-Odoi was among the first footballers to contract the coronavirus, with competitive action eventually being placed in an indefinite state of postponement.
He is among those to have returned to full training, with Frank Lampard’s side set to restart their 2019-20 campaign away at Aston Villa on June 21.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
