Despite his young age the centre-back stands at a towering six feet in height and has already been capped by Denmark at Under-17 level.
"I have chosen Chelsea because they play the kind of football I like,” Christensen told Ekstra Bladet. "At the same time, they have the best plan for my future in football."

The Nigerian midfielder could make his comeback this weekend when his team travel to face Everton.
