OFFICIAL: Chelsea complete the transfer of midfielder. Welcome to Chelsea

Chelsea has confirmed the signing of highly-rated German midfielder Sjoeke Nusken, with the player joining the Blues from Eintracht Frankfurt on 1 July 2023.

The 22 year old midfielder has signed a three-year deal with Chelsea until the summer of 2026.

Speaking about what attracted her to Chelsea, Nusken said: “I wanted to move to the Women’s Super League because it’s a good league, English football is very cool to play in and it’s the right thing to do now. I’m very excited and happy to be at Chelsea and I’m looking forward to next season.

“It’s a big club with such good players. I hope to improve my football skills. I’m very excited to meet my new team-mates and I can learn a lot from them.”

Manager Emma Hayes commented: “Sjoeke is a fantastic young midfield player and her ability to play the ball deep into the opponents’ half is not her only standout strength, there is everything from her interceptions, her reading of the game and her overall presence. She’s dynamic, good aerially, and is going to be a fantastic signing for this club.”
