Drew Spence has completed a free transfer to Tottenham Hotspur from cross-London rivals, Chelsea on a two-year contract.

Spence has previously spent her entire professional career at Chelsea where she netted 50 goals in 238 appearances in all competitions across a 14-year spell in West London.

During her time at Emma Hayes’ Blues, Spence helped the team clinch 13 trophies across all three domestic competitions, including; six Women’s Super League, four Women’s FA Cup, two League Cup titles plus 2020 Women’s Community Shield.

Speaking about her decision to stay in London but switch to Tottenham following her decision to leave Chelsea, Spence said: “I’m really excited. It’s a new chapter for me.

“I’ve seen how much the team has progressed over the past few seasons, challenging teams at the top, so it’s the right move for me and somewhere where I can bring all my experience.”

The 29 year-old went on to state that her intention is to add a winning edge to Spurs who have made steady progress in recent seasons, as she continued: “I know how to win titles, I know what it’s like to be in a dressing room where there is a winning mentality every day and hopefully that’s something I can bring here.”

Tottenham Hotspur Women Head Coach, Rehanne Skinner  described Spence as “a fantastic addition to the squad”, as she described the midfielder’s achievements as “significant” given her “huge amount of experience and understanding of winning,” within the game.

Skinner also spoke about the impact that she expects Spence to make upon the midfield section of her squad as she added: “As a midfielder, Drew is creative, tenacious and capable of unlocking defences in a number of ways, and will be an asset to the team.”

Spence also previously made two international appearances for England before switching her allegiance to Jamaica.
