Brighton and Hove Albion Women’s defender Maya Le Tissier has signed a new contract keeping her at the Seagulls until 2023.
The 19-year-old made 21 appearances in last season’s WSL campaign, when Albion finished in their best-ever position of sixth.
Head coach Hope Powell told: brightonandhovealbion.com: “It’s great news that Maya has committed her long-term future to the club, and I believe she will play an important role in our development over the next few seasons.
“She is already a real talent who works extremely hard at her game, but I think she is capable of becoming even better. I know that playing for England is one of her goals and I believe we can help her achieve that ambition at some stage in the future.”
Le Tissier added: “I’m really pleased to be staying at the club long-term. With the profile of the club and the WSL increasing it’s a great time to be part of what we’re trying to achieve at Brighton. We’re also moving into a fantastic new training facility at the American Express Elite Performance Centre in the next few days, which I think is massive for the club and our development as players.”
