Edwards, who was Chelsea's under-18 coach before stepping up to take charge of their development squad in 2017, has played a key role in the Hudson-Odoi's progress.
The exciting teenager is being linked with a £35million move to Bayern Munich after struggling for game time at Stamford Bridge - though he has started the last two cup games, including the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg defeat at Tottenham. "It was a general question from him".
Such is their keenness to sign the England youth worldwide that sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic spoke openly about their interest on Wednesday, as he said: "He is fast, good at dribbling, he would fit very well into our team".

Chelsea is the best place for Callum Hudson-Odoi and he should resist the allure of Bayern Munich, according to development squad manager Joe Edwards. It is something he needs to decide.
Hudson-Odoi's outing against Spurs was only his 12th senior professional appearance, making the proposed fee all the more remarkable, but Rudiger believes that his team-mate lives up to the hype, despite his inexperience. "We want to sign him", said Salihamidzic.
"He played like a player of 25 or 26 years, I think - very good match of application, very good in the defensive phase, very, very good".
"The referee told me they have explained it to us already but maybe they haven't explained it to the linesman because he stopped and if there is any doubt that it is offside he has to continue running".
"We certainly value him as a player". He has all the tools to become a big player, but he has to work a lot.
