Callum Hudson-Odoi has been told that he still has a future at Chelsea.
The winger moved to Bayer Leverkusen on loan just before transfer deadline day, and is already enjoying life at his new club, where he is feeling appreciated and has become a regular starter.
That is a relative novelty for him after the last two seasons when he struggled with injuries and was in, and largely out, of the side, under Thomas Tuchel.
That led the player who was once the subject of bids from Bayern Munich, to become introspective and wonder what he was doing wrong.
However, when Chelsea agreed to let him move to the Bundesliga side they had one pre-condition , and that there would be no buy-out clause included in the deal.
Instead, Chelsea are hoping that, by the end of the season, they have a more mature and developed player on their hands, and one who could still play a big role for them in future seasons.
And, with Tuchel now gone as well, the Stamford Bridge he goes back to could be a vastly different place to the one he left.
