Chelsea finally reach contract agreement with emerging star
Chelsea have finally sorted out the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi after committing the teenager to a new long-term contract with the club.
The England international had been in a contract standoff with the Blues since the turn of the year amid concerns that he may struggle to earn regular gametime with the first-team.
However, the player's stance has finally changed following months of negotiations and the Blues have now confirmed that he has penned a new contract until the summer of 2024.
"It's an amazing feeling. It's been a long wait but it's done now and I'm really happy about that," Hudson-Odoi was quoted as saying by the club's official website following the renewal.
Hudson-Odoi has recovered from a serious Achilles injury picked up during the backend of the previous season but he has yet to make his bow under Frank Lampard due to the reduced match sharpness.
The League Cup clash against Grimsby Town could witness the potential return of Hudson-Odoi on the playing field. Alongside the teenager, Reece James could be handed with a Blues debut during that game.
