Ted Boehly has completed another bit of Chelsea business as Canadian defender Kadeisha Buchanan has signed- a statement has been revealed

Buchanan has spent the past five-and-a-half-years at Lyon where she most recently won the UEFA Women’s Champions League against Barcelona, securing her fifth Champions League trophy with the French side.

She is regarded as one of the finest womens players in the game right now and has been named Canadian Player of the Year three times, nominated for the prestigious FIFA Ballon d’Or and featuring in the FIFPro Women’s World X – she really is a top-class signing

The club announced on the club website: ‘Chelsea FC Women are delighted to confirm the signing of Canadian defender Kadeisha Buchanan on a three-year deal ahead of the 2022/23 season.

‘Buchanan will join up with the squad in the summer prior to heading to the States for the WICC tour in August. Welcome to Chelsea, Kadeisha!’

On her arrival to Chelsea, Buchanan commented: ‘I am coming to Chelsea with the same ambition I always had – win trophies and become the best in the world.

“The club has everything in order for us to compete in every competition and it’s time to bring a Champions League trophy to London.

‘I’m hoping to bring my experience to the team and continue on the successful pathway that the club has been on for the past seasons. I can’t wait to join my new team-mates and the coaching staff on this journey.’

Commenting on Buchanan’s move to the Blues, Chelsea Women manager Emma Hayes added: ‘Kadeisha is a serial winner at the top of her game and I have no doubt we are signing a world-class player who has proven herself on the world stage.

‘She is going to bring a quality to our group and with her brilliant personality and character, we think she will be really liked within the dressing room.

“We look forward to welcoming Kadeisha this summer.”
