Arsenal’s Australian international forward Caitlin Foord has signed a new deal with the Gunners ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

The 27-year-old has so far made 62 appearances and scored 23 goals since joining the Gunners early in 2020.

Foord told www.arsenal.com: “Since I joined this club, I’ve absolutely fallen in love with being here. I think I mentioned in one of my early interviews that I had lost my way in football a bit, but since being here I’ve absolutely fallen in love and found myself again.

“We’ve been inching towards winning lots of silverware and that’s definitely going to be the plan for next year. We want to win multiple trophies and I think with the squad, the team, the players and the support we have, we have the squad to be able to do it.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “Caitlin is a top player and an integral part of what we’re building here. Her contribution in both attack and defence are crucial to our game, so we’re delighted that she has signed a new contract. This is an ambitious club and Caitlin is central to that.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “We’re all very pleased that Caitlin will be staying with us. She is a wonderful footballer in her peak years, so she is exactly the kind of player we want to keep at this club. We look forward to seeing Caitlin in action for Arsenal in the years to come.”
