SNAPPED: Hudson-Odoi completes miraculous return to Chelsea training

Callum Hudson-Odoi has returned to training with Chelsea.

The English winger has been out of action since April with an ankle injury.

He was expected to be out for six months but recovery has gone better than expected.

Images have confirmed manager Frank Lampard's suggestion that the 18-year-old would be available soon.

"He's getting closer," Lampard said. "He's trained the last week or two with the Under-23s and is looking good. There is going to be a period of conditioning work for him. The injury looks good, which is the great news.'

"The injury looks good which is the great news. Then he's going to have to be fitter than he's ever been because I'm going to want him to run!"
