Chelsea confident Hudson-Odoi will sign after breakthrough and Defender makes transfer announcement
Chelsea are hopeful that teenage sensation Callum Hudson-Odoi will sign a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge.
Hudson-Odoi’s impressive performances for both club and country have been dominated by transfer talk that he is all set to leave the club at the end of the season, after failing to get the kind of game time that he wants under Maurizio Sarri.
Sarri has used the talented 18-year old sparingly in the Premier League this season as the winger has only made five appearances, with the Italian boss preferring to use Hudson-Odoi in the domestic cup competitions and the Europa League, where he has netted four goals for the Blues.
That has led to a lot of speculation that the likes of Bayern Munich are prepared to offer him a way out of Stamford Bridge in the summer on a cheap deal, especially since his current contract runs out at the end of next season, allowing him to leave for free next summer.
However, The Independent are claiming that a ‘previous impasse’ has now been resolved and we are more confident of keeping their sought-after talent at the club for the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, Kenneth Omeruo wants to leave Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Omeruo joined us back in January 2012 from Standard Liege’s youth academy and was tipped to become a real star at Stamford Bridge, but despite all the hype surrounding his talents, he still hasn’t registered a single minute in a competitive game for the Premier League side.
The Nigeria international is currently on loan with Leganes – his sixth temporary club – and he wants to make this one permanent at the end of the season.
“The football here suits my style and the club provides a stable platform for me,” Omeruo told BBC Sport.
“There is an option for Leganes to sign me on a permanent basis and hopefully that will happen.
“It will be a decision between both clubs, but personally I hope I’ll be a Leganes player for next season and beyond.”
