The Chelsea Football Club have confirmed the retention of Norweigan winger Guro Reiten on a new contract, which could see her remain at the Blues until June 2026.

Previously contracted until the end of the 2024/25 Women’s Super League (WSL) season, Reiten has signed a three-year contract with the option to extend until June 2026.

Agreeing to her last deal in August 2022, Reiten has been instrumental in Chelsea’s success since joining them from LSK Kvinner five years ago. Her time at the club has seen her earn four WSL titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups and a Community Shield victory.

“I’ve been here four years now and I’ve loved every second of it,” said Reiten. 

“It feels like my second family and I have some really good friends here. I enjoy my time on and off the pitch and there is no place I’d rather be.”

The winger is coming off a successful campaign in the 2022/23 season that saw her nominated for the Women’s Ballon d’Or (finishing 19th), earn multiple Player of the Match awards and was selected in the PFA Team of the Year – she also lifted the WSL and FA Cup double.

In 39 matches, the Norwegian international scored 13 goals – most famously against Lyon and Barcelona in the Champions League – and was a consistent performer in all Blues matches, whether in the WSL or other competitions.

Away from club level, the 29-year-old helped Norway reach the Round of 16 at the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand and also took home the 2022 Norweigan Football Association Women’s Player of the Year award.

Chelsea general manager Paul Green added: “We’re really happy to give Guro a new deal and reward her for excellent performance.

“Guro is an important player for us and we look forward to seeing that continue over the upcoming years.”

The confirmation of her new contract means she has become the first player at Chelsea to sign a deal after news emerged that manager Emma Hayes will depart the club at the end of this season to take on the head coach role at the USWNT.
