Bayern Munich have been rebuffed in their approach to sign to Callum Hudson-Odoi, with the winger now set to stay at Chelsea.
Hudson-Odoi is going nowhere this summer with the 20-year-old keen to fight for his place at Stamford Bridge, according to the Sun.
The England international’s stance is a major blow to Bayern, who have been long-term admirers and had hoped to construct a deal around a swap for Kingsley Coman.

Coman’s future is reportedly up in the air after he hit an impasse with the German giants over a contract extension – with his current terms expiring in 2023.
Hudson-Odoi is currently contracted at his boyhood club until 2024 and hopes to play a greater role than last season under Thomas Tuchel.
He started the first three games under Tuchel, following the German’s appointment as manager in late January. However, on February 20 he was substituted having only come on as a second-half replacement during their 1-1 draw at Southampton.
The Blues youngster then found himself further down the pecking order as Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech were preferred in the wider attacking berths.
