The 19-year-old Chelsea star was arrested last month on allegations of rape made by a model
The Sun reported last month that the Chelsea star allegedly asked the woman to arrive at his property wearing lingerie and that the pair exchanged flirtatious messages beforehand.
But following a ‘full and thorough investigation’, the 19-year-old confirmed in a statement posted on Twitter that no further action would be taken.
‘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,’ he said.
‘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 revealed in March that he had contracted coronavirus, and was among one of the first Premier League players and staff to be affected.

Hudson-Odoi has emerged as one of the Premier League club’s most exciting prospects over the past two seasons.
Last year, the 19-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich, who tabled three bids for the winger worth as much as £45million.
Last September, he became one of the best-paid teenagers in world football after signing extended terms with the Blues worth a mind-boggling £180,000 per week.
