It’s been a tense time for Chelsea fans watching Callum Hudson-Odoi’s future play out, but it appears the teenage prospect will remain a Blue for the foreseeable future.
Hudson-Odoi has given new manager Frank Lampard a major boost by agreeing to stay at Chelsea. The 18-year-old has finally accepted the club’s most recent offer a 5-year contract worth £100,000 a week and is expected to sign before the start of the season. (Times) #CFC #FCBayern

It is being widely reported that the 18-year-old attacker has agreed to a new five-year deal with Chelsea worth £100,000-a-week, ending the saga surrounding Hudson-Odoi after the youngster handed in a transfer request in the January transfer window following a rejected bid from Bundesliga side Bayern Munich (per BBC Sport).
The teenager started just 11 games last season for the Blues under Maurizio Sarri, but with new manager Frank Lampard claiming via BBC Sport that Hudson-Odoi could be central to Chelsea’s future, it seems these words have turned the winger’s head to remain at the club.
Of course, reaction was rife on social media as Chelsea fans took to Twitter to express their excitement over one of the club’s best prospects securing his long-term future at the club. Here is what some supporters had to say…
Good news for all Chelsea fans across the world

Personally he doesn’t deserve that much money. BUT as always I don’t care if he proves he’s worth it now.
Put pressure on himself to produce now let’s see it next szn. 10+ G 10 A+ in the league minimum

Hudson Odoi recieving such a huge paycheck in his contract can be expected. He’s one of the brightest prospects in the world and Chelsea naturally want to keep hold of him. However, he needs players and management to keep him grounded. Football should still be his primary focus
