Christensen wants a new Chelsea contract

Thu 29 April 2021 | 9:01

After falling out of Lampard’s pecking order earlier this season, the 25-year-old is back in favour under Thomas Tuchel as the German has given him a regular role in his plans.

With his contract to expire in the summer of 2022, the Danish is eager to prolong his spell with the Blues.

Christensen told

the club’s official website

: "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."

As a key player for Thomas Tuchel, Christensen has made 23 appearances for the blues this season.
