Andreas Christensen among four players leaving Chelsea this summer

Chelsea have confirmed that four more players will join the club this summer, including defender Andreas Christensen.

Dane’s international deal expires this summer, ending his 10 years at the London club.

The 26-year-old came through the academy ranks at the London club and later graduated in the club’s first team, where he made 161 appearances.

During his decade-long stay at the club, Christensen won the FA Cup, European League, European Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and UEFA Champions League.

The club also confirmed the release of Danny Drinkwater and Charlie Musonda.

Drinkwater signed from Leicester in 2017, making his debut in the League Cup win over Everton and scoring his only goal for Chelsea in the Blues’ last game of that season, crushing Stoke City 5-0.

In total, Drinkwater made 23 appearances for Chelsea, in addition to his time on loan in and outside England, with his last competitive match for the Blues coming in the 2018 Community Shield.

Another notable player walking through the exit door is Jake Clark Salter, who will end his 16-year association with the club.

The quartet joins Antonio Rudiger, who has signed for Real Madrid, in exiting the club.
