Callum Hudson-Odoi ended speculation surrounding his future by signing a new five year contract with the Blues on Thursday.

There had been talk of a move to Bayern Munich but the 18 year old has now committed his future to Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hinted at building his Chelsea team around Hudson-Odoi.

“I have seen Callum come through and he’s a fantastic talent,” said Lampard.

“He is going to be central for us on the pitch and that is the opportunity in front of him now.

“There are things as a young player that he will want to improve but he can be central to this team and for England.

“I want to work with him, I want to drive him forward and I want to improve him as a player.

“Callum can show, right here at Chelsea, the club he came through the Academy at, that he is going to be a world-class player because I truly believe that.”

Hudson-Odoi admitted he’s delighted about signing a new Chelsea contract.

“It’s an amazing feeling,” Hudson-Odoi said. “It’s been a long wait but it’s done now and I’m really happy about that.

“I’ve been a Chelsea player since I was eight and this is the right club for me to be at.

“I want to lift as many trophies as possible, win as many games as possible and contribute to as many goals as I can as well. As a team, we just want to work hard to achieve the best results we can.

“I’m delighted everything has been agreed and now I’m just looking forward to properly getting back.”
