Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to join Nottingham Forest from Chelsea for a fee under £5 million.
The 22-year-old is seen as a replacement for the outgoing Brennan Johnson who is set to join Tottenham Hotspur for £50 million.
Winger Hudson-Odoi will be joining the club, playing under boss Steve Cooper for the second time after playing for the current Reds boss for England U17s.
Cooper is said to be a major factor in the deal for the talented winger, with Hudson-Odoi placing his trust in the Welshman to get his career back on track.
Steve Cooper has the pulling factor
The Chelsea winger has endured a testing few years after suffering an achilles injury and an unsuccessful loan spell in Germany at Bayer Leverkusen.

A move to the City Ground under a boss who knows how to get the best out of him could help Hudson-Odoi reignite his career and hit the heights he managed at Stamford Bridge.
The Daily Mail have reported that Cooper believes he can get the best out of the winger, with the 22-year-old in agreement with Cooper, as the Reds boss is seen as a huge factor in his decision to move to the City Ground.
With the fee for the former England U17 international rumoured to be below £5 million, it is a great piece of business for a player who was subject to a £70 million bid from German giants Bayern Munich just three years ago.
He has the chance to really get back on track with a fresh start at Nottingham Forest, proving himself to be a successful replacement for the outgoing Johnson.
