Callum Hudson-Odoi has no intention of parting ways with boyhood club Chelsea as he is determined to become a regular in Thomas Tuchel's team.

The 20-year-old struggled to become a consistent part of Tuchel's plans, starting just 10 Premier League games for the Blues.

And reports have been rife that the Champions League winners are considering offering Hudson-Odoi in a swap deal for Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman.

However, the England international of Ghanaian descent doesn't want to leave as his aim is to fight to regain a starting berth in the coming season.

Amid intense speculation surrounding a possible exit for Hakim Ziyech, the report adds that Hudson-Odoi is optimistic about his chances of more first-team opportunities should the Moroccan depart.

Hudson-Odoi, who spent part of his summer holidays in Ghana, ended the 2020-21 season with five goals and five assists in all tournaments.

His current deal at Stamford Bridge does not expire until 2024.
