#SPORTS:Hudson-Odoi drops big hint over Chelsea future amid contract talks

Callum Hudson-Odoi has stated that he wants to 'carry on and keep going' for Chelsea amid ongoing contract talks.

The 18-year-old has been involved in new talks for several months, and while football.london understands there has been an agreement, nothing has yet been confirmed.

A photo this week showed a young Hudson-Odoi as a Chelsea ballboy celebrating a Samuel Eto'o goal, with the young winger having come through the Chelsea academy.

And even though Hudson-Odoi's future is still unconfirmed, he has hinted that he wants to remain at Stamford Bridge and be a big part of Chelsea going forward under Frank Lampard.

"You dream of being a professional as a kid, especially at the club I’ve now been at for so long. You think, 'Can I become like him or at least get to the top where he [Eto'o] is?' and I’m now fulfilling that dream," Hudson-Odoi said to the Chelsea official website.

"It’s the boyhood club I’ve always loved and played for, so I’ve always felt that that dream is there. Now I just want to carry on and keep going.’

"I’m back in full training with the squad so everything’s good. It’s now about getting back to match fitness and hopefully I’ll be back on the pitch soon."

Hudson-Odoi's contract situation has dragged on since January, when Bayern Munich were keen on taking the young winger to the Bundesliga.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists that he has no new update on Hudson-Odoi's contract negotiations, but that the youngster could be back in action by the end of next month.

"No update at all. I've laid my cards on the table about it a while ago and it's between him and the club at the minute," Lampard said.

"Callum is training, looking bright and sharp but now we're in the zone where it's about protecting him, giving him conditioning with fitness, especially in the area of his injury. He has had quite a long time out. Like with Rudiger’s injury."

"The international break comes at quite a good time for us with both of those and for Reece James. They’re all in a position where, I hope, two or three weeks of strong training puts them back in the frame for the squad and available."
