Fast-budding England international and Chelsea forward, Callum Hudson-Odoi is stepping up contract talks and is headed for extension of his stay at the Stamford Bridge after assurances from new boss Frank Lampard.
The teen Chelsea rookie, who runs out of contract next summer, looks set to snub Bayern Munich move after the Germany side showed interest on the star who was falling-out with the former manager, Maurizio Sarri who has since moved to Italian side Juventus.
Lampard, a former Blues player has given the youngster and other Blues youngsters a clear pathway to first-team football, unlike former manager Maurizio Sarri who seemingly sat on the raw talent.
The revelations are a good sign which means the 18-year-old is set to join Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek who have already extended their stay as homegrown talent committing their futures to the club.
“He knows he has a boss here who wants to work with him to improve.“There are a few younger players now. Some have signed, some will sign in the next month or so.”
