BALTIMORE DEAL DONE – 

Chelsea have announced the signing of Sandy Baltimore from PSG – and the winger is delighted with the move.

The forward has agreed a four-year contract after leaving PSG, where she made over 200 appearances: ‘It is important for me to have those relationships when coming to a new club,’ Baltimore told the club website. ‘They can help me adapt with things like the language and living in a new city and with things on the pitch.

‘Knowing them gives me more confidence for when I am playing. It will help me feel a bit freer to focus on the football.’

‘It is reassuring to see [them do well since joining CHELSEA] because it gives me confidence that hopefully I can do the same,’ said the 28-time capped French international. ‘It is my time to try and do the same now.

‘I know it can take time to adapt at a new club, but I am going to work hard and keep my focus.’

‘I’ve played against Sonia in France,’ said Baltimore. ‘It is true she’s a very strong manager with a very good record. She is a good coach and has won a lot.

‘When I was at PSG, the games against Lyon were always difficult. They were always very good battles. I am excited to work together with Sonia at Chelsea.’

‘I know this is a very good club,’ said Baltimore. ‘I’m happy to be joining Chelsea. It is a really exciting moment for me.

‘I started playing at Paris Saint-Germain at a very young age. The fact I started playing there so young means I have grown up with football and I had to mature quite fast.

‘I’m hoping I can keeping growing and continue that development here at Chelsea. I want to be able to bring the technical qualities that I have and use them to help the team.

‘I hope the fans will be able to see my technical abilities and my ability to move the ball around to my team-mates. At Chelsea, I want to improve tactically and the physical side of my game.’

‘I played against CHELSEA two years ago and it was not an easy game,’ said Baltimore. They were a very difficult team to play against and I could tell they were physically very strong.

‘That was interesting to me and I know I am going to be able to progress in my physical game here.’

“Obviously the history of the Club speaks for itself, there’s great players here and legends of game such as Jamie Vardy. I’m just looking to soak up as much information as I can from the senior players, to learn from the staff and hopefully have a great season.

“I’m excited to break into the First Team and play with these players. I’m buzzing to meet the lads and hopefully I can get involved and get ready for the season as well and improve on the pitch with the team.”

“I can’t wait to get started with training and learning from the Manager,” the youngster expressed. “I’m very excited to learn from Steve Cooper, given some of the players that he’s worked with and his track record of working with young players.
