Tottenham Hotspur have signed experienced midfielder Drew Spence until 2024, with the option of a third year.
The 29-year-old had spent her entire career to date with Chelsea, the Jamaica international making 238 appearances and scoring 50 goals over 14 years of service, making her the club’s longest-serving player.
Spence helped Emma Hayes’ side win 11 major trophies and before committing to Jamaica, made her senior debut for England at a tournament in China.
Spence told tottenhamhotspur.com: “I’m really excited. It’s a new chapter for me. I’ve seen how much the team has progressed over the past few seasons, challenging teams at the top, so it’s the right move for me and somewhere where I can bring all my experience. I know how to win titles, I know what it’s like to be in a dressing room where there is a winning mentality every day and hopefully that’s something I can bring here.”
Rehanne Skinner, Head Coach, added: “Drew is a fantastic addition to the squad we are building. Her achievements in the WSL have been significant, having been involved in the league since the start in 2011. She brings a huge amount of experience and understanding of winning, having been a part of 11 trophy-winning teams. As a midfielder, Drew is creative, tenacious and capable of unlocking defences in a number of ways, and will be an asset to the team.”
