Danish defender Andreas Christensen says he will return to parent club Chelsea next season.

The 21-year-old, who signed for the Blues in 2013, played just once for the Premier League champions before being shipped out to VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach on loan.

He featured regularly for the Bundesliga side over the past two seasons, having spent the previous two campaigns turning out for Chelsea's youth and reserve sides.

Speaking to BT, the former Brondby IF youth said: "I will join up with Chelsea on July 7. I haven't talked to (Antonio) Conte yet.

"I have talked to the sporting director and all those responsible for getting the players set up with a flat and what else belongs to them.

"The sports director says the plan is that I meet like all the others and go through the pre-season."
