Chelsea ace Kirby signs new two-year deal

Chelsea forward Fran Kirby has signed a new two-year contract with the club according to reports on The Blues’ official website.

The 27-year-old Reading-born attacker has successfully returned to form following a serious illness which floored the player for most of last season.

It has today been reported that Kirby has signed a new contract with Chelsea until summer 2023. The South West Londoners will also hold an option to extend the deal by a further year should they wish to do so.

Kirby started her career with hometown club Reading where she successfully made the jump from The Royals’ Regional Talent Centre (RTC) into the senior team. The player joined current club Chelsea in 2015 and she has played her part in The Blues’ successes over the last five-and-a-half years.

During her time as a Blue, Kirby has won three league titles, along with the 2017 FA Women’s Super League Spring Series while she has also lifted two Women’s FA Cups, the FA Women’s Continental League Cup and the FA Women’s Community Shield.

Kirby’s sensational form this season has seen her score 11 Barclays FA Women’s Super League goals in just 13 appearances. She is also the third-highest provider of assists in the competition with six.
