Chelsea extend Kirby's contract by a year

England forward Fran Kirby will remain at Chelsea until at least 2024 having had her contract extended by a year.

The 29-year-old's contract was due to expire at the end of this season, but Chelsea have triggered an option to keep Kirby for one more year until next summer.

Earlier this month the club revealed that Kirby is set for a "significant period" on the sidelines and will require surgery on a knee injury that will see her miss this summer's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The midfielder joined the Blues from Reading in 2015 and has gone on to become the Women's Super League club's leading scorer with 110 goals in 175 appearances.

During her time with Chelsea, Kirby has won 13 trophies, including five WSL titles as well as the FA Cup on four occasions.
