Andreas Christensen has signed a new four-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea.
The 21-year-old Denmark international, whose new contract will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2-22, has been rewarded after establishing himself as an important member of Antonio Conte's first team this season. The defender returned from two seasons on loan at German club Borussia Monchengladbach this summer and has made 22 appearances so far Chelsea, becoming a regular starter in place of David Luiz. Christensen, who has 13 caps for Denmark, said: "It feels really good to sign a new contract and I’m just happy to be committed to Chelsea for the future. I’ve played a lot of games, I’m enjoying it at the club and everything is working well." Jan 9 - 5:21 PM

Andreas Christensen is expected to be available for Chelsea when Stoke City visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte confirmed in his post-match press conference on Tuesday that the Denmark central defender missed the Boxing Day victory over Brighton due to illness. Christensen has been a mainstay in defense since early-November, starting the last nine matches prior to missing out on GW20. Christensen will likely return to the starting XI if fit for the visit of West Brom, while his absence would afford Antonio Rudiger another start alongside Cahill and Azpilicueta.

Andreas Christensen will join Borussia Monchengladbach on a season-long loan.

The defender progressed into Chelsea's first team last season and has made big strides as a player. As with every other prospect, Chelsea are sending him out on loan so he can earn valuable playing time and experience. Christensen will likely be a starter at Borussia Monchengladbach and can even earn experience in the Champions League. This is a great move for all sides involved.

Andreas Christensen is expected to play for Chelsea during their summer tour in an attempt to earn a senior-team spot in the coming year.

Christensen is a highly rated center-back and was recently linked to a move to Sunderland. His agent has denied the rumors, saying the defender will play for Chelsea during the summer tour. Chelsea have a big need at center-back, as they have no capable backup for John Terry and Gary Cahill. Christensen could prove to be that backup if he proves he can be trusted during the summer matches.
