Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has just one year left on his Chelsea contract and the 18 year old has stalled on signing a new contract as he wants assurances over playing time.

According to BBC, Hudson-Odoi is hopeful a new deal can be agreed in the next few weeks after positive words from new manager Frank Lampard.

The BBC claim Hudson-Odoi will sign a £100,000 a week contract in the next few weeks.

Hudson-Odoi was convinced his future is at Chelsea after Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said he will be central to his team.

“I am not going to say things that are pie in the sky but, with his talent, he can be central to this team, he can be central to England,” said Lampard.

“He can show, right here at Chelsea, the team he came through the academy at, that he is going to be a world-class player – because I truly believe that.

“I will pay a lot of care and attention to Callum – because of the contractual position he is in – to try to get him to stay, and not with any lies or any false statements to him.

“That of course goes to a decision between him and the club and I am not involved in the financial negotiations, but I can certainly tell him how I see it and I see him being a huge player for us.”
