ONE FOR THE FUTURE: Chelsea turn down £14.25m bid for Andreas Christensen.

Chelsea have turned down a bid of around £14.25m for Andreas Christensen after he was named Player of the Year over at Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany halfway through his current two-year loan deal.

It's a clear sign that the club hold him in the highest regard and see him as a Chelsea player next season and beyond. At only 20, Christensen still has his football career ahead of him but it's worth noting what an impact he has already made being given a regular starting role in the first team.

If there is one area that Chelsea simply MUST strengthen it's our defence and I bet the club are kicking themselves that they allowed him to stay on loan for two seasons and not for just a single term.

Having made such an impact in his first season being awarded the Player of the Year by his club, Christensen also went on to make his senior debut for Denmark which is a fantastic achievement. It's this type of progress that gives the player confidence and belief that he can perform in any first team that he has made it clear that when he does return to Chelsea, he does not want to feature as just a bit-part player. He wants regular first team action. He said:

'The main thing is to play. That's the main thing that I want for my future.

It is all about playing football and that's it. (Playing at Chelsea) is an ambition of mine, to play over there in the first team - but right now I am not thinking about the future.

I am not thinking about Chelsea and what they are doing and what I am doing, I am focusing on what Borussia is doing. I am just really looking forward to playing games and hopefully qualifying for the group stages of the Champions League.

I am thinking about what I am doing this season because I really need to push after the first good one. So now I am just really looking forward to push for the second season and try to develop as a footballer even more.'

It would have been an easy option for Chelsea to accept a staggering amount of money for a 20-year-old who has hardly featured in our first team since he has been here. As I said, the fact that Chelsea turned down the offer is a clear indication that we should expect to see him in a Chelsea shirt next year and beyond. Whether that's in the first team is another story but, in my opinion, he should be.
