Andreas Christensen optimistic about new Chelsea contract after resurgence following ‘tough’ Frank Lampard spell

CHELSEA defender Andreas Christensen has insisted he is ‘happy’ at the club and that talks over a new contract ‘look good’.

The 25-year-old Dane, who has been sensational for the Blues since Thomas Tuchel arrived in January, will become a free agent in the summer if he does not sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

But Christensen remains confident he will be staying at Chelsea beyond the end of the season.

As reported by TV3 Sport, the centre-back said: “It’s hard to say how things will end up.

“There is a lot of talk. I will not say too much, but I think it looks good.

“I am happy to be at Chelsea.”

Christensen was out of favour during Frank Lampard‘s spell as manager of the club.

And the defender has now admitted that he found it ‘tough’ while the former England midfielder was in charge at Stamford Bridge.

But now things appear brighter and he believes strongly that Chelsea is ‘the right place’ for him to continue his career.

Christensen is currently away on international duty with Denmark where he is hoping to secure his country’s qualification to next year’s World Cup in Qatar.

The Danes travel to face Moldova on Saturday and then host Austria three days later.

Meanwhile, European champions Chelsea have gone into the international break top of the Premier League table.

Next up for Tuchel’s side is a trip to Brentford on Saturday, October 16 as they look to continue their impressive start to the domestic campaign.
