Chelsea midfielder, Jessie Fleming has signed a two-year contract extension to stay with the club until June 2025.
Fleming first arrived at Chelsea in summer 2020 on an initial three-year deal and after graduating from University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), where she scored 25 goals in 75 appearances for UCLA Bruins in College Soccer.
Across her time so far at Chelsea, Fleming has scored eight goals in 68 appearances, during which she claimed two Women’s Super League (WSL) and FA Cup titles apiece, plus one FA Continental League Cup and 2020 Women’s Community Shield.
Fleming’s versatile midfield performances across the last two seasons and opening seven matches of the current campaign, have consequently proven enough to secure a two-year contract extension with just nine months left on her original contract.
Speaking about the opportunity to stay with Emma Hayes’ Blues for two more seasons, Fleming commented: “I am so excited to be staying at Chelsea for the next few years! In Chelsea I have found a home away from home with an incredible group of staff and players.”
Fleming also pledged to continue helping the club challenge for major honours as they currently sit third in WSL, as she added: “I will continue to give my very best to the club each and every day I am a blue.”
Chelsea Women’s General Manager, Paul Green added that the club is “delighted” to have signed Fleming for two further seasons, following completion of her contract extension.
Green also praised the 24 year-old for her progress since she arrived in West-London as he added: “She has been developing well over the last couple of years and we look forward to seeing her continue to improve and develop in the upcoming years.”
Fleming is the sixth player this season to commit her future to Chelsea after Jess Carter, Maren Mjelde, Millie Bright, Jorja Fox and Aggie Beever-Jones all signed new contracts in recent months.
On the international stage, Fleming has scored 18 goals in 104 appearances for Canada including an equalising goal in 2020 Olympic Final against Sweden, from which she went on to score the opening spot kick as the Canadians eventually won Gold medal on penalties.
