Chelsea have finally announced that winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
The Blues had been in negotiations with the player for a while, but the London club have finally ended speculation about the 18-year-old’s future after confirming the new deal.
Fans on Twitter are delighted that Hudson-Odoi has committed his future to Chelsea:

The teenager only had less than twelve months left to run on his previous contract and there had been a risk that he could leave when his deal expired next summer.
Bayern Munich, in particular, were interested in Hudson-Odoi but this latest announcement should put to bed any talk of the player leaving Stamford Bridge in the near future.
With the winger also closing in on a return from an Achilles injury, supporters can look forward to seeing Hudson-Odoi back in the first team very soon, having committed to the club for the long term.
