Chelsea tell Callum Hudson-Odoi he must stay in spite of Bayern Munich bid
• London club reject transfer request from 18-year-old winger
• German champions have £35m bid turned down
Chelsea have rejected Callum Hudson-Odoi’s transfer request, turned down Bayern Munich’s £35m offer for him and told the 18-year-old winger he is staying put at Stamford Bridge for the remainder of the season.
The London club took the hardline stance on Monday, just as Bayern were preparing what they hoped would be a decisive push to take Hudson-Odoi before the deadline on Thursday.
