Chelsea set to complete deal for first-team defensive addition

Andreas ChristensenThe Chelsea fans are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern discussing reports that the club are set to recall one of their defenders from a loan spell.

The Telegraph is reporting that the club are set to recall Andreas Christensen from his loan spell at German side Borussia Monchengladbach.

Chelsea are currently facing a crisis at the back  following an injury sustained by Kurt Zouma, who on Sunday saw his season ended through injury.

With John Terry not having his contract renewed at the club and a season of poor results, it gives Chelsea a chance to blood some of their young talent in readiness for next season.

19-year-old Christensen has won high praise during his spell with the German side and Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink is set to bring him back and see how he copes with playing in the Premier League.

The Chelsea fans in The Tavern are fully behind the club trying the younger players out now as a finishing place in Europe seems well of the cards now.

Chelsea fans, is this a good move from your club? Let us know in the comments below!
