Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement in principle with Andreas Christensen over the extension of his contract.

According to The Telegraph, Christensen has agreed a new contract with the club that just needs to be formalised.

Christensen’s current contract was due to expire at the end of the current season.

Back in April, Christensen talked about his contract situation with the Blues.

He said: “I’ve shown that I’m here for the long run. I’ve been here almost nine, 10 years now.

“I’ve never doubted my decision [to come to Chelsea] and I’ve always been here for the long run. I accept that the club sometimes changes managers, and that can make it hard to always be in the team.

“After the loan spell [at Borussia Monchengladbach] I came back and played a good amount and since then it’s been a bit in and out, but it’s nice at the moment to play back-to-back games and my confidence is growing with each game.

“There have not been any talks [on a contract extension] yet, but like I said, I’m in this for the long run and I always have been. I feel like this is my second home. Denmark will always be my home, but Chelsea will always be my place.”
