Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has been linked with a January exit with reports claiming the club intend to replace the Dane by signing Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has ruled out a move away from the Bridge this month for Andreas Christensen.

Lampard said: “I can rule that out. I like Andreas as a player, I used to train with him and saw the talent coming through and I want him to be the best that he can be.

“You see the height, the athleticism and the quality on the ball, particularly his choice of pass, and I want him to be all the things he can be.

“The reality is we have competition at centre-back so most weeks two of them won’t be that happy, one particularly not happy, but as with all the players I want to work on parts of their game that I think they can improve.

“Against Aston Villa, I thought he was immense and then sometimes if we are coming up against teams who are physical then Andreas really has to stand up to that and I don’t mind saying that.

“He knows that and needs to know that but those little bits in his game can really make him the fantastic centre-half that I think he can be.”
