Done! Chelsea agree deal for defender

      Chelsea's highly-rated centre-back Andreas Christensen has committed his future to the club after signing a new four-and-a-half-year deal.

Chelsea confirmed the news on Tuesday evening in a statement that revealed the new contract is a reward for the 21-year-old's impressive performances since he returned from his two-year loan deal at Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer.

The defender has cemented his place at the heart of Antonio Conte's three-man defence since David Luiz was dropped from the team in November and subsequently suffered a knee injury.

And speaking about his new deal, which will tie him down to Chelsea until 2022, Christensen said: "It feels really good to sign a new contract and I’m just happy to be committed to Chelsea for the future.

"I’ve played a lot of games, I’m enjoying it at the club and everything is working well."
