​Christensen changes stance on Chelsea future

Chelsea star Andreas Christensen has changed his mind about wanting to leave the club.

Christensen demanded a move in the winter transfer window, after not playing during the first half of the season.

But he has changed his mind, deciding that he will fight for a first team place instead

When asked by the Evening Standard to clarify the situation, he replied: "It's always difficult when I speak in Danish and it's translated.

"I've said I'd like to stay, but they haven't said I'm definitely staying. I've said what I want to happen and that was definitely staying.

"I've still got a long contract (2022). I'm still proud to be a Chelsea player. I've been here since I was 16. The club have done a lot for me.

"All the cup games and the Europa League have been very important in keeping me up to speed. I want to play every game, but I've taken my frustration out in this competition. It's been helping me a lot."
