Chelsea confident in keeping Hudson-Odoi amid Bayern links

Callum Hudson Odoi could be staying at Chelsea

Chelsea believe they are on course to tie Callum Hudson-Odoi to a new contract, according to the Daily Mirror.

Bayern saw a £35 million ($44m) offer for Hudson-Odoi rejected by Chelsea and have retained an interest in the teenage winger.

Die Roten attempted to lure the 18-year-old to Bavaria in January, with the player going so far as to hand in a transfer request to push a move through, but the Blues held firm and refused to sanction the move.

He could now earn as much as £100,000 a week in his new contract after his value skyrocketed following his impressive performances for Chelsea, in addition to winning his first caps for England.

The London-born wonderkid did not make his first Premier League start for Chelsea until after he had made his England debut against Czech Republic in March.

Deal close: James has Manchester United medical
In the past few hours, however, the situation changed - with Swansea reportedly agreeing to United's £15million bid. Sportsmail revealed exclusively last month that United were front-runners to sign James.

Hudson-Odoi is now nursing an injury and therefore was unable to play any part in his side's 4-1 Europa League final win over Arsenal, a competition he had come familiar with this season after netting four times in nine outings for the Blues.

With Eden Hazard nearly certain to leave for Real Madrid, and a transfer ban now inflicted on the Blues, retaining Hudson-Odoi's services is huge.

While Bayern are still keen to sign Hudson-Odoi, they have turned to other targets as they look for replacements for Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

Unfortunately for Hudson-Odoi, his season ended early when he suffered an ACL injury.

One of the reasons for waiting until the Hazard deal completes, is that Hudson-Odoi may inherit the Chelsea #10 shirt.
