German champions Bayern Munich were strongly interested in signing Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi and made several attempts to sign the Englishman in January but Chelsea rejected all offers for the highly rated winger.

Hudson-Odoi was in the final year of his contract before committing to a new long-term deal with Chelsea under new boss Frank Lampard.

The 19-year-old has now admitted that he seriously considered making the move to Bayern Munich and thought of how it would be to play for the Bavarians, but is now convinced that he made the right decision to remain at Chelsea.

“I think I was more thinking about it. I wasn’t saying I was definitely going to sign (for Bayern) or I wasn’t going to sign. I was thinking about it,” said Hudson-Odoi.

“There were times last year where I felt a bit of frustration or times when I wanted to play more because I love the game.

“I was thinking, ‘what happens if I do that (go to Bayern)?’ But at the same time, I thought to myself, ‘this is the club that I’ve been at and this is where I want to become a key player’.

“I made the right decision to stay at Chelsea. I’ve been there all my life and I’ve loved the club from day one.

“Obviously, the academy boys who have come through are playing loads of games and I’m happy to be around them. Now I just want to keep working hard for the team and achieve something with the club.”
