Chelsea defender Christensen: I'm not going anywhere

Andeas Christensen has ruled out an exit from Chelsea.

Despite being a regular starter in the Europa League this season, the 21-year-old didn't enjoy the same run of games in the Premier League and was reportedly interested in an exit from Stamford Bridge.

The Evening Standard quote Christensen as saying: "I'm not wondering about my future now and I haven't done that for some time.

"I'm happy to be in London and, with the way the season has evolved, there's no reason to think about it any more.

"I'm only 23, so it's probably very wise to stay. It's nice that there is peace and quiet and I can concentrate on playing football.

"I have always been happy but there have been times when I wanted to play more.

"If I can play as much in the future as I have done in the spring, then that's fine.

"The end of the season has really been as good as it could.

"I got a lot of playing time and we ended up winning a trophy, so it couldn't be better."
