Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi looks set to hand the club a major boost by signing a new five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.
The 18-year-old has enjoyed a fine breakthrough campaign for the Blues, starring in the early stages of their Europa League campaign - before being cruelly ruled out of the final after sustaining a serious Achilles tendon injury against Eintracht Frankfurt.
However, manager Maurizio Sarri's unwillingness to expose him to regular Premier League first-team football saw Hudson-Odoi attempt to engineer a move away from the club in January; with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich lodging a number of sizeable, but unsuccessful, bids for his services.
It seems a dramatic u-turn is in the offing, though, with the Evening Standard reporting that a 'major breakthrough' has been made in new contract negotiations - after Hudson-Odoi turned down new contracts last summer, as well as in January.
His number 10 shirt is expected to be handed over to Hudson-Odoi, whose new contract is expected to be signed, sealed and delivered in the next few days.
