(Reuters) - Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said he has dropped Andreas Christensen over the defender's reluctance to finalise a new contract with the London club.

Christensen played 13 times for Chelsea this season but has not featured since starting in their 1-1 draw with Burnley on Nov. 6. The Danish international's current deal expires at the end of the season.
