The sought-after youngster recently signed a new five-year contract with Chelsea, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2024.

Last season looked like it will be the last one for Callum Hudson-Odoi at the Stamford Bridge.

The Blues youngster showed glimpses of his stunning talent before falling down to a season-ending injury.

However, his relationship with Maurizio Sarri wasn’t good, which prompted Hudson-Odoi to put in a transfer request.

Bayern Munich was on the other end, showing constant interest in the pacey winger.

However, with the departure of Sarri and Lampard’s arrival, Hudson-Odoi found new life at Chelsea, signing a new contract in progress.

He opened up about his current situation in an interview with talkSPORT:

“It was obviously a disappointment to get the injury. It’s something you don’t plan on and you don’t want it in life, but you’ve got to go through it,” he said.

“My mentality was to stay strong because I was doing good for myself personally, to get a run of games and be involved in so many big games.

“The injury came and there were bigger games coming on, so there was a disappointment but I’m back now playing and I’m happy. There process went perfectly to plan.”

When asked about his new contract, Callum

“I’m delighted with the contract; to get the five years is an amazing feeling.

“I’ve been at the club so long already so to stay here is another amazing feeling.

“Now that’s finished, I’ve got to focus and work hard now to get a place in the team.”

Hudson-Odoi started the latest league match against Southampton.

The competition for winger spots is fierce, but Frenkie looks like he prefers Callum Hudson-Odoi to the American international, Christian Pulisic.

“Right now, [England is] flooded with Chelsea players!” Hudson-Odoi continued.

“It’s a good thing because it’s showing that we’re doing really well at the club.

“Hopefully we’re showing the managers that we want to work hard, we want to play games, everyone’s enjoying their football at the moment, and it’s a good feeling around the camp.”
