Pre-Chelsea career

Andreas spent his formative years as a part of the Brondby academy in Denmark. He agreed to move for a six-figure fee in early 2012, choosing Chelsea over a number of major European clubs including Arsenal and Manchester City.

Chelsea career

Andreas' Chelsea career began belatedly after a series of international call-ups curtailed his involvement at the start of the 2012-13 season but he made up for lost time by impressing in the Under-18 league and earning regular appearances in the Under-21 fold. He impressed enough to earn consideration mid-season as an emergency selection in the first team squad for a League Cup tie away to Leeds United, and despite missing out, he was eventually named on the first team bench on the final day of the season at home to Everton, being assigned the number 32 shirt.

He went on to play in a pair of post-season friendlies in the United States against Manchester City, playing well at centre back in both St. Louis and New York City. A regular Under-21 berth awaited him upon returning to that level for 2013-14, and he was amongst the most consistently impressive players during the first half of that season. That good form continued late into the campaign and he was an integral part at the hear of a team that won the Under-21 Premier League and the FA Youth Cup.

Andreas made his first team debut on 28 October 2014, in a 2-1 away win against Shrewsbury Town in the League Cup, playing the full match at right back. He went on to make two further first-team appearances including a Premier League debut against Sunderland on the final day of the season.

On July 10th 2015 it was announced that he would join Borussia Mönchengladbach on a two-year loan deal.

International

Andreas has represented Denmark at all international youth levels and made his debut for the senior team in June 2015 against Montenegro.
