Chelsea graduate Callum Hudson-Odoi is prepared to sign a new long-term deal with the club, provided he is assured of regular gametime for next season and beyond.
The England international became a regular under Maurizio Sarri during the backend of the season but his season was however curtailed by a serious Achilles injury.
Since then, there has been regular speculation regarding his future with his contract expiring in 12 months’ time and the attacker now appears to have provided the condition to pen fresh terms.
According to The Sun, the 18-year-old is said to want assurances of regular first-team football in order to accept the five-year contract proposal on the table.
The same outlet reveals that the attacker is waiting for the managerial uncertainty to be resolved with Maurizio Sarri expected to part ways with the club this month.
Blues legend Frank Lampard remains the outright favourite to take up the managerial role with the west London giants after enjoying an impressive first season in management with Championship side Derby County.
