Lampard: Hudson-Odoi Close to Chelsea Return.

Frank Lampard says that Callum Hudson-Odoi’s return is “not far off” as he backed Chelsea’s youth star to shine in the Champions League

Hudson-Odoi returned from an Achilles tendon rupture on Friday night and Lampard has been monitoring his 18-year-old closely ahead of a first-team return.

Lampard’s side beat Wolves 5-2 on Saturday afternoon without their winger but his return is very close after he played 60 minutes against Brighton’s Under-23s.

Chelsea are also set to announce a lucrative new £180,000-a-week contract for Hudson-Odoi as they fend off interest from Bayern Munich, and Lampard is thrilled to welcome the exciting young talent back into the fold.

“I did watch him. I spoke with him this morning. He’s not far off,” Lampard said at Molineux stadium.

“We have to be careful because it was a big injury and what we have done is actually got him back out on time but we have to make sure the strength is right in the area because that could lead to other injuries if we go too soon.”
