Chelsea centre back Andreas Christensen has repelled rumours of a possible move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
The Denmark defender has been at the club for well over ten years and is interested in staying at the club despite the fact that he has just one year left to run on his current contract. The imposing centre back has been favoured by new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel in recent times.
Christensen addressed his future in a recent interview with the Chelsea official club website. Speaking about his situation at the club, he said:
I've shown that I'm here for the long run. I've been here almost nine, ten years now. I've never doubted my decision 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.
There have not been any talks yet, but like I said, I'm in this for the long run and I have always been. I feel like this is my second home. Denmark will always be my home but Chelsea will always be my place.
Christensen's comments effectively put to bed any lingering doubts as to his future playing destination.
