Andreas Christensen has confirmed that he will return to Chelsea for pre-season training ahead of discussions with Antonio Conte regarding his future.
The Denmark international has spent the past two seasons on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, where he impressed and established himself as a first-team regular for the Bundesliga side.
But with that deal at an end, Christensen is heading back to Stamford Bridge to make a decision on his long-term plans.
"I will join up with Chelsea on 7 July," he said. "I haven't talked to Conte yet.
"I have talked to the sporting director and all those responsible for getting the players set up with a flat and what else belongs to them.
"The sports director says the plan is that I meet like all the others and go through the pre-season."
Christensen made his sole Premier League appearance for Chelsea in its 2014-2015 title-winning campaign.
