Izzy Christiansen has committed her future to Everton Women, signing a new two-and-a-half-year contract until the end of June 2023.

England international Christiansen (29) has hit four goals in 12 WSL appearances for the Blues this term and helped the team reach the 2020 FA Cup final.

Everton manager Willie Kirk said: “I’m delighted to get Izzy’s contract extended with the club.

“I’ve loved working with her since she arrived just over a year ago. From day one she has challenged and improved our standards and shows great leadership on and off the pitch.

“She had a slow start to her time after picking up a couple of niggly injuries almost immediately but since returning to the pitch it has been clear for all to see her undoubted quality.

“She is technically fantastic, physically in great condition and, tactically, way ahead of most players.

“Izzy will be pivotal to the success that we are trying to bring to the club.”

Everton Sporting and Commercial Director Sarvar Ismailov added: “Izzy is a phenomenal player. She is still hungry after already having achieved so much in football.

“She is a great leader in the team both on and off the pitch.

“We are delighted to continue our journey together to new success.”
