Callum Hudson-Odoi finally signs a new Chelsea contract

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia believes that youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is fully deserving of his new contract at the club.

"I've been a Chelsea player since I was eight and this is the right club for me to be at", he said.

The Englishman, who will turn 19 in November, has pledged his future to the Blues until at least 2024 and is regarded as a key player despite his young age.

He made his debut in the first team last January and since has made 27 appearances, scored five goals and more impressively became Chelsea's youngest-ever England global Gareth Southgate handed him his England debut against the Czech Republic during their European Championship qualifying fixture.

Hudson-Odoi told Chelsea's website: "It's been a long wait but it's done now and I'm really happy about that". The club worked hard with him and he worked hard to get into the first team.for me it felt that it's what everybody wanted. Callum is the youngest player to appear for England in a competitive game.

The midfielder made his return to motion in an U23 recreation in opposition to Brighton earlier this month and Lampard says he might be "central" to Chelsea's aspect in years to return.

A transfer ban has meant Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has made a decision to put his faith in a host of young players at Chelsea.

"A lot of the talk was before me, a lot of that talk was from last season, so I only saw that from the outside", added Lampard.

"The only thing [that has changed] is that we've got a more positive vibe in the changing room and on the pitch". It is good for me because it is encouraging: you see players that you have watched or played with throughout the whole time and they are getting opportunities to play and you have that same hunger and desire, you want to play as well.

Simply put, a new contract for Callum Hudson-Odoi means the club is now leaning towards youth and are ready to embrace their academy products.

The 18-year-old will step back into a squad rejuvenated by academy graduates such as Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, all given opportunities and backed by the new manager.
