Chelsea football club were undoubtedly one of the few busy Premier League clubs during the just concluded summer transfer window before it was shut in September.
The West London club have shown desire to add more trophies to the cabinet this season and did complete the signings of Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Bettinelli to improve the squad available to manager Thomas Tuchel.
That has quite worked out as expected so far, as the Blues are currently on top of the Premier League table after winning their last match against Southampton before the ongoing international break.
That said, the Blues could now be happy with reports that experienced central defender Andreas Christensen has agreed to extend his contract with the club beyond the end of the ongoing 2021/2022 season.
The 25-year-old Denmark International, who joined Chelsea after leaving Brondby IF in 2012 has been an important member of the first team squad over the previous seasons.
The experienced centre-back was in rock in the Chelsea last season, making 27 appearances in all competitions as Chelsea marched on to win the UEFA Champions League.
Andreas Christensen has also started the 2021/2022 season on a bright note, making eight appearances and helping the Stamford Bridge side to first position on the Premier League table.
The central defender has less than than a year left on his current squad, but according to reports from Daily Mail, he has now reached an agreement with Chelsea to extend his stay at the club beyond this season.
The reports further claimed that it is only a matter of time before the necessary paperworks is signed by Andreas Christensen.
That said, the experienced central defender is now expected to return to Stamford Bridge this week after the international break and could play a part when Chelsea travel to play high-flying Brentford on Saturday.
