Chelsea‘s young star Andreas Christensen is an Aston Villa reject.

The Sun reports the Dane was initially uncovered by Villa scout Alfie Apps.

It’s suggested he could have been snapped up from Brondby’s youth team after being recommended.

Christensen only wanted £600-per-week to move to Villa Park.

But Villa dithered and allowed Chelsea to swoop in and secure a deal.

Christensen joined Chelsea five years ago but spent the last two years at Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.
