West Ham United Women’s Icelandic midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdóttir has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

Brynjarsdóttir’s 28 appearances for the Hammers in 2021-22 was the second highest in the squad, while she was joint-top goalscorer with Claudia Walker.

“I’m delighted to be able to stay with West Ham United,” she told whufc.com. “I have really enjoyed the last year and a half here and I’m looking forward to making some more memories in Claret and Blue.

“I’m already looking forward to the new campaign. When there are changes within the club, it’s always a little bit sad when you have to say goodbye, but it’s also exciting!

“I really respect Konch [Paul Konchesky] as a coach, so I’m excited to be a part of his first West Ham team.”

General Manager, Aidan Boxall said: “We are delighted that Dagný has decided to extend her contract for the next two years. Her arrival in January 2021 was the catalyst of change within the football club as she leads by example on and off the pitch.

“Her professionalism and experience has been a shining example to the younger players and she has made a huge contribution with some big goals and assists over the course of this season.

“Dagný is also the perfect role model for all women – showing that you can combine being a high performing athlete and a mother.”
