Niamh Charles has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal with CHELSEA and she is delighted with the signing.

The 24-year-old joined the club from Liverpool in the summer of 2020 and has contributed to three Barclays Women’s Super League titles, three FA Cups, the Continental Tyres League Cup, and also helped us reach the 2021 UEFA Women’s Champions League final.

‘I can’t wait for the next few years,’ said Charles. ‘I feel at home here and I feel the pride in playing for Chelsea and what we stand for, what we’re about. There’s still lots to be achieved here and we can get better and better. I wanted to be a part of that.

‘Since I’ve been here, I would probably describe it as a massive growth learning curve. It’s been challenging but it’s everything I’ve wanted since I came to CHELSEA. I’ve grown a lot as a player and as a person. Hopefully that continues in the next few years.’

The 24-year-old defender also explained why the team spirit within the squad and her close bond with her fellow Blues is a big part of the reason she is so excited to commit her future to Chelsea.

‘I remember some times when our backs have been against the walls and we’ve managed to grind out a win, or we’ve ended up winning a trophy, and what I love is when you go back to the changing room and celebrate with your team-mates.


‘We spend days and days together on the training pitch that no-one sees, working really hard. To see it paying off like that, you can’t buy those moments.

‘I love playing football with them but I also love hanging out with them all the time, so I’m excited to come to work every day and see their faces and hopefully create a lot more memories, on the pitch and also off the pitch.’

‘To the fans, I’ll just say thank you so much for your support so far. I’ve really enjoyed playing in front of you and I feel a lot of pride when I pull on the shirt and I really appreciate you.’
