Sam Kerr has signed a two-year contract extension with Chelsea, keeping the striker at the club through to 2024.

The Australia captain made her debut for Emma Hayes’ side in January 2020, and has since scored 39 goals in 47 games.

Kerr has already found the next six times in seven appearances in the Women’s Super League this season, and the 28-year-old made it clear that she sees her long-term future at Chelsea.

“It’s really exciting. I’m really happy at the club,” Kerr said.

“We’ve had good success, being at a club like Chelsea is an amazing opportunity.

“The time was just right, I feel really comfortable being here. I think the club gives me every opportunity to succeed as a player.

“I can’t see myself going anywhere else in the world or leaving Europe, having what I have at Chelsea.”

Kerr has won two WSL titles in her time in England, as well as getting to the Champions League final last season.

The chance to add more medals to her collection was something that evidently played a major factor in her decision to extend.

“The team speaks for itself, every day at training playing with world-class players; getting challenged every day and winning trophies at the same time,” Kerr said.

“I hadn’t won much when I came here and after last season, I think it’s just a no-brainer for me to stay.”
