From ESPN - January 9, 2018

Andreas Christensen has signed a new long-term contract with Chelsea that runs until June 2022, the Premier League champions have announced.

The Denmark international has been rewarded for a season that has seen him start 13 of Chelsea's 22 Premier League matches and displace David Luiz as Antonio Conte's first choice in the centre of defence.

"It feels really good to sign a new contract and I am just happy to be committed to Chelsea for the future," Christensen told the club's website. "I have played a lot of games, I am enjoying it at the club and everything is working well."

Club director Marina Granovskaia added: "This contract is reward for the excellent form Andreas has shown in the first half of the season. He showed immense potential when he signed for Chelsea in 2012 and is now enjoying the benefits of the dedication and professionalism he has shown since.

"After two seasons on loan in Germany we were convinced he was ready to be a part of the squad this season and he has grasped the opportunity with both hands. We are delighted he has chosen to commit his future to Chelsea and we look forward to four-and-a-half more successful years with Andreas at the club."
