Exclusive: Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James are close to signing new contracts with Chelsea - with both set to play an integral part in head coach Frank Lampard's first team plans this season.

The news on Hudson-Odoi is a particularly big boost for Chelsea given his current deal expires at the end of the season - and previous attempts to tie the player down had failed amid interest from Bayern Munich.



Lampard is ready to throw James into the first team in the coming weeks following his performances at Wigan last season, and potentially because of the patchy form of Cesar Azpilicueta - who has filled the role of right back in the early weeks.



Hudson-Odoi is expected to feature prominently upon his return.

He is close to a return to the first team and is expected to feature for the club's Under-23s, alongside James, on Friday night.

James earned rave reviews at the DW Stadium as he scored three goals and managed three assists, helping the Latics stave off relegation by finishing 18th in the Championship.

Mason Mount in particular has impressed, while Tammy Abraham has scored four goals in four  Premier League outings.
