Frank Lampard urges Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay at Chelsea
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has urged want-away winger Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay at the club.
The 18-year-old wants a move to another club in the summer, with Bayern Munich keen to sign him.
He is not happy at his limited playtime under Maurizio Sarri this season. But Lampard hopes that he will remain patient and ultimately stay with the Blues.
"Firstly, I'd love him to stay at Chelsea," the Derby County boss told talkSPORT.
"He needs to be doing everything to get in that team. Is he working hard and is he developing every day in training and trying to improve?
"I don't know him that well but I'm sure that's the standard at Chelsea he's going by himself.
"Every minute he gets on the pitch he needs to be doing everything he can.
"I understand Chelsea fans want to see more of him and he has to do everything he can to give himself the chance of minutes.
"I think at the end of the season he will look back and think what can I do with my career. It's a mad one because a young English player at Chelsea at that age then you really want him to sign that long-term contract.
"I hope it can be agreed that he can stay at Chelsea."
