Chelsea finally reach contract agreement with emerging star

Hudson-Odoi finally signs new Chelsea deal


Chelsea have finally sorted out the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi after committing the teenager to a new long-term contract with the club.

The England international had been in a contract standoff with the Blues since the turn of the year amid concerns that he may struggle to earn regular gametime with the first-team.

However, the player’s stance has finally changed following months of negotiations and the Blues have now confirmed that he has penned a new contract until the summer of 2024.

“It’s an amazing feeling. It’s been a long wait but it’s done now and I’m really happy about that,” Hudson-Odoi was quoted as saying by the club’s official website following the renewal.

Hudson-Odoi has recovered from a serious Achilles injury picked up during the backend of the previous season but he has yet to make his bow under Frank Lampard due to the reduced match sharpness.

The League Cup clash against Grimsby Town could witness the potential return of Hudson-Odoi on the playing field. Alongside the teenager, Reece James could be handed with a Blues debut during that game.

Chelsea receive fresh update on Mason Mounts ankle injury

Mount could feature against Liverpool


Chelsea have received a positive update on midfielder Mason Mount following the ankle injury sustained during the Champions League clash against Valencia.

The England international picked up the damage following a strong tackle from Francis Coquelin in midweek and it was initially indicated that he may have sustained a long-term setback.

However, according to The Sun, that does not appear the case with scans showing that the 20-year-old has not damaged any ligaments through the challenge from the former Arsenal man.

It is added that the Blues graduate remains a touch and go for the forthcoming Premier League clash against Liverpool and a late fitness test may determine his involvement.

Mount has been a revelation for the Blues since making his debut at the start of the campaign and he has already contributed three goals in the Premier League, where he has featured in the number 10 role.

Aside from Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham have been handed with the opportunity to impress under Lampard and the duo have likewise delivered with standout performances.

Chelsea close to agreeing terms with emerging star

England international close to signing new Chelsea contract


Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly on the cusp of signing a new long-term contract with the club after an extended period of negotiations.

The attacker has not featured for the Blues this term due to his recovery from an Achilles injury and he is currently stepping up his fitness while playing for the development squad.

According to The Telegraph, the youngster has already agreed to a five-year contract on wages of £100,000-a-week and the club are now putting finishing touches before announcing the renewal.

The England international has been with the west London side since the age of six. He made his breakthrough during the previous campaign where he contributed five goals and five assists from 24 appearances.

Hudson-Odoi has also represented the England national side on a couple of occasions and he stands a chance of making the Euro 2020 squad next summer, provided he can excel with his performances on his injury comeback.

Chelsea receive double injury boost


Chelsea have received a fresh injury boost with young duo Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James tipped to return to first-team action following the ongoing international break.

Hudson-Odoi suffered a serious Achilles injury during the penultimate month of the previous campaign but he has made a swift recovery to participate with the Blues in regular training.

James, meanwhile, has been a short-term absentee following the ankle problem sustained on England Under-20 duty but he appears close to making his Blues debut after similarly returning to first-team training.

According to injury analyst Ben Dinnery, both players are set to make their injury comebacks following the international break and they could take the playing field by the end of the month.

Hudson-Odoi’s absence has not hampered the team drastically with the emergence of Mason Mount while Tammy Abraham has been able to show his goalscoring exploits.

On the other hand, James has been regarded as the future choice for the right-back spot but he could be handed with an early debut, considering the poor form of Cesar Azpilicueta in the role this season.

Football Transfer Centre


Chelsea have reportedly sanctioned the sale of defender Michael Hector to Fulham, though the Englishman won’t be eligible to feature until the turn of the year.

The 27-year-old was touted to pursue a fresh challenge away from the Blues during the English transfer window but a move failed to materialise before the deadline.

Still, he had been fancied to part ways with the Blues and it has now been confirmed that he will officially become a Fulham player when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

“It’s good to now be a part of the set-up here. Hopefully things can work out well and we can get promoted. I know how tough the Championship is and it won’t be any different for us,” he told Fulham’s official website.

Hector is expected to train with the Cottagers during the forthcoming months before the registration takes place in January. Fulham have made a decent start on their Championship return with 10 points from six games.

Frank Lampard news

Barkley hails Mason Mount’s quality


England international Ross Barkley has said that Mason Mount has similar traits to Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard from his playing days with the club.

The 20-year-old has made his breakthrough with the Blues first-team in fine fashion this term and he has already contributed a couple of goals in the Premier League.

This has earned him with a call-up to the England national side and Barkey has hailed his compatriot by comparing his style of play to club legend and current boss Lampard.

“The way he arrives in the box and gets shots away early, it is similar to Lamps. He has a really good technique with how he finishes as well. He is a brilliant player,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

Both Barkley and Mount could be competing for one place in the starting lineup with the Three Lions and it remains to be seen whether the latter is handed with his debut during the forthcoming internationals.

Aside from Mount, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrone Mings are the other potential candidates, who could make their maiden bow with the Three Lions during the forthcoming European qualifiers.

Tammy Abraham news

Abraham could make England return


Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is reportedly one of the players, who could be in contention to make the England squad for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.

The 21-year-old has already represented the Three Lions on two occasions in 2017 but both of those games were in friendly encounters.

As a result, there has been speculation over the marksman mulling over switching his allegiance to Nigeria and Abraham has recently refused to rule out the same.

Amidst this, The Independent claims that Abraham may earn another call-up with the Three Lions when Gareth Southgate names his 23-man squad on Thursday.

Aside from Abraham, Blues teammate Mason Mount has been widely fancied to make the national team squad alongside Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Abraham was the subject of racial abuse from his own Blues fans earlier this month, but he has managed to redeem himself with a match-winning brace during the 3-2 triumph over Norwich City last weekend.

Chelsea attacker set for new five-year contract?

Hudson-Odoi set for new Blues contract


Chelsea are prepared to reward Callum Hudson-Odoi with a new five-year contract before reintroducing him to first-team action next month.

The youngster has been sidelined for the past four months with an Achilles injury but he has recently returned to first-team training with his teammates.

According to The Telegraph, the west London giants are in advanced negotiations over a new deal with the winger and they are optimistic of committing him to a five-year contract before he makes his comeback.

Hudson-Odoi is currently on a £25,000-a-week package at the Blues and he stands the chance of boosting his salary by at least seven times, should he extend his contract with the club.

The England international is presently contracted to the Capital outfit until the summer of 2020 and has been linked with a big-money move to Bayern Munich in the past.

The German champions seem to have ended their interest following a series of failed bids in January and are unlikely to come up with a renewed approach in the near future.

Chelsea receive injury boost with attacker returning to training

Hudson-Odoi returns to regular training


Chelsea have received a much-needed injury boost with Callum Hudson-Odoi returning to first-team training following his recovery from an Achilles problem.

The England international picked up the injury during the month of April and he thereafter went through a surgery which has ruled him out of action to date.

However, it appears that he is on course to make a comeback by the middle of September after joining his teammates in regular training for the first time this season.

Hudson-Odoi has less than 12 months remaining on his existing deal with the Blues and so far, he has shown no indication whether he would be willing to extend his stay.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has remained positive when asked about the potential contract renewal but Hudson-Odoi may wait for a couple of months to assess whether he can command a regular role under the new manager.

Chelsea have managed to secure the single point after the opening two league games of the season. They are scheduled to face Norwich City on the road this weekend.
