Fri 12 March 2021 | 11:11

Scoring 15 goals in 21 league games, Fran Kirby has been in great form this season as she helped the blues to maintain the top of the table, and now she seems to continue her magnificent presence for the Blues for another couple of seasons.

She told the Chelsea website: "I’ve been a part of this club for a very long time, and it didn’t take much thought. I knew where I wanted to be, and I think you could see that in my performances.

"I was really trying to prove to myself, to the fans who haven’t been able to watch me for a long time and to the club. It was a no-brainer for me that I wanted to stay in this environment.

"I really wanted to work and prove that I was worthy of a new contract. I’ve spent a lot of time out ill and I remember speaking to Emma at the start of the year and I said I didn’t want anything given to me, I wanted to earn my spot to play, I wanted to earn my spot to be involved with this team and stay in this team.

"That’s been a massive goal of mine this season and I want to keep doing that. I’ve signed a new contract, but I want to make sure that I keep pushing myself every day and, as long as I keep doing that, I know that I’ll be in a good place."

The 27-year-old has scored 62 goals in 97 appearances for Chelsea since joining the club in 2015, and was also part of the England side which finished third at the 2015 World Cup and fourth in 2019.
