Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has agreed a new contract with the club, according to reports.
The 18-year-old England international is currently recovering from surgery on a ruptured Achilles tendon which prematurely ended his season.
A product of Chelsea’s academy system, Hudson-Odoi made 24 appearances and scored five goals in his breakthrough campaign, which also saw him called up to the senior England squad.
Hudson-Odoi had attracted interest from German giants Bayern Munich during the January transfer window, with a £35million offer said to have been on the table.
However, it now appears the teenager is set to commit his long-term future to the Blues, a lucrative new five-year deal said to have been agreed.
Following reports of the contract, Hudson-Odoi posted a picture of himself in action for Chelsea on his social media accounts, without a caption, but which attracted plenty of replies from fans at the expected news.
As we head back to London, we say a huge thank you to our partners @YokohamaCFC, and all our fans for the fantastic support and hospitality we have received in Japan. 🇯🇵💙— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) July 23, 2019
