Newly appointed Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has urged young winger Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay and be a part of his plans at Chelsea.
According to the Chelsea legend, Callum Hudson-Odoi can be central to his plans at the club.
Frank Lampard spoke about the England international player during the preseason tour of Dublin.
The former Chelsea midfielder was speaking ahead of the friendly with St. Patrick Athletic.
He said that it’s too early to make promises but his desire is for Callum Hudson-Odoi to be an important player for his Chelsea team.
Callum Hudson-Odoi came through the ranks at Chelsea before making his debut for the Blues last year.
The 18-year-old has impressed in the Chelsea team since he appeared in his first game.
Immediate past Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri didn’t play him like he would have liked in the last campaign and that seems to have cast doubt in his mind.
Hudson-Odoi was seriously linked with German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in January but the Blues were able to repel several bids from the Bavarian giants for him.
The player also submitted a transfer request which was turned down immediately.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is ready to sign a new contract but he wants more responsibilities in the team.
He has one year left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge.
