Callum Hudson-Odoi tipped to ink Chelsea deal in weeks

Callum Hudson-Odoi is close to signing a new deal with Chelsea.

The Daily Express says the arrival of Frank Lampard as boss, which has seen youngsters given a chance to impress, has helped convince Hudson-Odoi the best thing for his development could now be to remain in West London.

And as the teenager nears a return to first team action after injury, he is also closing in on reaching agreement on a £180,000-a-week five year deal.

Hudson-Odoi is expected to return to full first team training after the international break, ahead of making a playing return by the end of the month.

But that time, Chelsea are hoping to be in position to be able to announce they have finally signed the deal with one of their hottest young stars.
