Callum Hudson-Odoi has signed a new contract with Chelsea, keeping him at the club until 2024.
The highly-rated teenager, whose current deal expires next summer, said it was an ‘amazing feeling’ to finally put pen to paper.
“It’s been a long wait but it’s done now and I’m really happy about that,” he told chelseafc.com.
“I’ve been a Chelsea player since I was eight and this is the right club for me to be at.
‘I want to lift as many trophies as possible, win as many games as possible and contribute to as many goals as I can as well. As a team, we just want to work hard to achieve the best results we can. I’m delighted everything has been agreed and now I’m just looking forward to properly getting back.’
The 18-year-old frustrated by the lack of first-team opportunities under Maurizio Sarri last season and wanted to complete a move to Bayern Munich, who were seriously interested in securing his services.
The Bundesliga club are thought to have made three bids for the teenager in the January transfer window, with Hudson-Odoi allegedly handing in a transfer request.
