Hudson Odoi Transfer News: Chelsea star gives a major contract boost by preparing himself to sign five year extension with the Blues.
Callum Hudson-Odoi gives a major boost to Chelsea, as according to a report by the Standard, he is set to sign a new contract extension with the Blues, which will keep him at the Stamford Bridge until 2024.
The 18-year-old midfielder had a breakthrough season during this term. Since then, the Blues had long-term plans with the 18-year-old player.
Chelsea were determined to keep him at the club, even if the midfielder had not sign an extension, but it would have been a great risk as the player was left with one year in his last contract.
Bayern Munich were interested in signing the midfielder amidst the summer transfer window. However, the player is likely to snub the interests of the Bavarians, as he is set to make a long-term commitment with the Blues.
The 18-year-old player was having a sensational season with the Blues until he was hit with a ruptured Achilles tendon against Burnley in April.
He made 24 appearances in total for the senior side, including his first Premier League start against Brighton two months ago.
Thus, his brilliant exhibits earned him a call-up from the English National team, the English midfielder displayed brilliant exhibits in his two matches for the Lions.
It is further reported that the player is set to earn £100,000-a-week until he wishes to see this contract with this club.
It seems Chelsea will soon declare the extension with the club, as Hudson-Odoi is set to remain in the West-London club for several seasons to come.
