Chelsea boss Sarri happy with Hudson-Odoi for Spurs defeat

Callum Hudson-Odoi

And Warnock is completely at a loss to explain the muddled situation involving Sarri, Hudson-Odoi, Chelsea and Bayern.

Chelsea started with Callum Hudson-Odoi for their Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley tonight - despite the player being the subject of intense transfer speculation.

When asked if moving to Germany would be wise, the head coach said: "I don't think so, because he is an English player".

Still, only time will tell if he decides to wait it out at Stamford Bridge, or jump ship to another European Giant, to play his football outside the Premier League.

Chelsea's preference would be to turn down Bayern's offer and secure Hudson-Odoi to a new contract, but the youngster's representatives have shown no willingness to negotiate with the Blues in recent weeks and there is growing concern that his head has already been turned.

Maurizio Sarri wants Cesc Fabregas to make a January move from Chelsea to Monaco because it will make the midfielder happy.

Bayern Munich have failed with a bid to take Callum Hudson-Odi to the club this month, but could sign him from Chelsea in the summer, according to Sky Deutschland. He has a very great future here in England, with the national team and Chelsea. He played like a player of 25, 26 years.

Sarri has stated this week that he doesn't want to sell the player, arguing that staying at the club will be better for the player's long term future at both club and country level. He's not at a mid-table club thinking 'why am I not playing?' it's Willian, Pedro, proper players. Now with the midfielders we are in trouble I think. Very good defensive phase, but very good'.

Victor of two FA Youth Cups with Chelsea, as well as the Under-17 World Cup with England, Hudson-Odoi made his first team debut last January in an FA Cup tie with Newcastle.
