Chelsea defender rules out summer exit

Chelsea defender  Andreas  Christensen is not considering leaving the club and will stick around for a little longer. 

The 23-year-old featured all of Chelsea's 15 Europa League fixtures including the final and put in assured performances. 

He had initially indicated that if he would leave in search of more game time if manager Maurizio Sarri would not offer him that. 

It, however, seems that the part he played in the club's success this season has convinced him to stay, indicating he was happy to be involved more. 

“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.,"  he said as quoted by Evening Standard.

"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,” he added. 

There is set to be increased competition for game time next season, with the club set to bring back Kurt Zouma after his Everton loan. 

He is however expected to replace the departing Gary Cahill, and the club will be pleased to have experienced center backs in their ranks. 

The UEFA ban also means the club will be keen on ensuring they don't lose more players over the next two transfer window.
