Speculation has been mounting for some time that the 18-year-old defender could be allowed out on a season-long deal in 2014/15.

Sunderland are reported to be leading the chase for his services, with Gus Poyet prepared to offer the youngster a Premier League stage on which to perform.

Christensen has, however, not given up on taking that step at Stamford Bridge – with Chelsea holding the promising centre-half in high regard.

His representative, Sten Christensen, told Danish publication BT on the loan rumours: “That is news to me.

“I do not believe that Andreas will be joining Sunderland for the upcoming season.

“That is not my impression right now. I have not talked to the club about a loan for Andreas.

“At the moment, the plan is that Andreas will play for Chelsea when pre-season starts after the summer vacation.

“But things can change quickly in this game.”

Christensen is under contract at Chelsea until the summer of 2016.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
