Danish international Andreas Christensen's impressive performances for Chelsea this season were rewarded on Tuesday with a new long-term contract at the Premier League champions.

The 21-year-old central defender -- who has been with Chelsea since he was 15 -- has signed a new four-and-a-half year contract after replacing David Luiz as a first choice central defender following some fine displays since returning to London from two seasons on loan with Bundesliga club Borussia Moenchengladbach.

"It feels really good to sign a new contract and I'm just happy to be committed to Chelsea for the future," Christensen told the club website.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said the contract was a tribute to Christensen's performances this term.

"This contract is reward for the excellent form Andreas has shown in the first half of the season," she said.
