New Zealand international defender Ria Percival extends her stay with Spurs Women until June 2022 with the option of a further year.

Since signing from West Ham in July 2019, Percival has made 38 appearances in all competitions for the club.

Having shown her versatility at full-back and defensive midfield in her debut season, she played in 17 of Spurs’ 23 games this term.

Percival, who has a record 151 caps for New Zealand, told tottenhamhotspur.com: “We are trying to build as a team and keep pushing our way up the table to establish ourselves in the league.

“Keeping experienced players and players that can bring, I suppose, a leadership role to the team which I’m hoping to do, is something that I’m honoured and want to make the most of.”
