Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has been assured by club owner Todd Boehly that he still has a future with the London club after a difficult season at the London club which saw his career stall.
The 21-year-old is feeling much happier about his situation since heading to Bayer Leverkusen on loan, the Daily Mail reports.
Also at Chelsea, the club are close to appointing Christoph Freund as their new sporting director, the Daily Mirror reports. The club have been trying to fill the role since Petr Cech left the Premier League side following Boehly’s takeover in May.
Nathan Jones and Sean Dyche have been installed as the early favourites to become the next Cardiff manager, according to Wales Online. The Bluebirds announced on Sunday that they had parted ways with boss Steve Morison after a poor start to the season.
And the Daily Record reports that Celtic are interested in Maccabi Tel Aviv and Israel Under-21s attacking midfielder Oscar Gloukh, 18, and could make an £8million bid in January.
