Done deal: Chelsea extend Kirby contract
Chelsea have triggered their one-year contract extension option on Fran Kirby, despite her season-ending knee injury. The England international has been sidelined since February with a knee injury sustained against West Ham, ruling her out for the remainder of the WSL season and the upcoming Women’s World Cup.
While Kirby has made just 13 appearances across all competitions this campaign, Chelsea have recognised the importance of the 29-year-old, and have triggered a one-year extension on her current deal.
