Andreas Christensen has told Chelsea fans not to worry about his future despite his contract expiring in the summer.

The Blues face a nervous few months while negotiating fresh deals with the Dane, Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta - all of whom are currently free to leave at the end of the season.

But Christensen has been a regular in Thomas Tuchel’s defence and is not concerned about his Chelsea future.

When asked by the club website when he could be signing on the dotted line, he replied: “Hopefully soon.

“I feel valued, I'm happy but I do not get into the contract situation.

“I do not know why everyone thinks it is a bad situation. Because I'm still happy and I enjoy playing football.

“I do not think about it at all. I enjoy playing football, so I do not know.”

Standard Sport reported in September that a long-term, £120,000-a-week contract is near to being finalised with Christensen - but talks have gone less smoothly with German defender Rudiger.

Both are set to be able to pre-agree a free transfer with clubs abroad from January.
