Chelsea have announced that Sam Kerr has agreed a new contract at the club, and the attacker is delighted with the deal.

The 30-year-old joined the Blues midway through the 2019/20 season and has played a starring role, with five Women’s Super League titles, three FA Cups, two Continental Tyres League Cups and one Community Shield, while also reaching the final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

On putting pen to paper on a new deal, Kerr commented: ‘It’s really exciting and a very proud moment for me. Having the opportunity to stay at a club like Chelsea means a lot to me. I’m really excited to continue to push and to try to win trophies.’

‘It has been unbelievable,’ added the forward. ‘When I came to Chelsea, I joined to win trophies and we’ve definitely done that. These last four years, I’ve made memories and done so many things that I never thought were possible.

‘My signing day we spoke about the FA Cup and I used to watch that at home and think how amazing it was. The fact we won three back-to-back FA Cups was incredible to me. It’s completely smashed my expectations of what Chelsea would be. Hence why I’ve stayed so long!

‘Once you get the taste of this club and the community that Chelsea creates, it’s unbelievable and Chelsea will always be a part of my life now, whether I play here or not.

‘I will always be a massive CHELSEA fan because of the opportunities the club has given me.’

General manager Paul Green added: ‘We are delighted that Sam has extended her deal with the club. Sam is a leader and one of the world’s best strikers and goalscorers.

‘She has been very important to our success, and we look forward to welcoming her back from injury next season.’
