Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi: I stayed for Lampard

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi admits he chose to stay this season due to manager Frank Lampard.

After an aggressive push to sign him by Bayern Munich, Hudson-Odoi has penned new terms with the Blues.

The 19 year-old said, "That he came here is a great feeling for all of us because he previously talked about how he likes young players and I had a thought in my head that if he came here it would be fantastic for us.

"As soon as he arrived I thought: 'Yep, this is it'.

"I had some conversations with him and thought this is perfect, I want to stay here."
