Chelsea Signs Nigeria Deal

Chelsea Ladies striker Eniola Aluko has signed a new!contract ahead of Sunday’sWomen’s Super League showdown with title rivals Manchester City.

Aluko, whose brother Sone plays for Fulham, has scored 57 goals in 125 appearances across two spells with the!Blues, and was part of the squad which won the historic!League and Cup double last year.

She first played for the club between 2007 and 2008, prior!to a spell in America, and rejoined in 2012 from!Birmingham City. Aluko said: “I’ve won trophies, which is why I came back to!Chelsea.

“When Emma Hayes became the manager, I really!believed this was a team that would be successful. And we have been.

“I’m continuing to learn, to grow, and I continue to be challenged every day. The coaching staff are very intelligent people who I respect.” The game away at City on Sunday could decide the fate of the WSL trophy, as if Chelsea come away with anything less than a victory, their reign as champions will be over.
