Andreas Christensen: Hoping to break into the first team set-up at Chelsea

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.
