London [UK], November 12 (ANI): Chelsea Women's captain Magdalena Eriksson has signed a contract extension which will keep her with the side until 2023.

"Chelsea FC Women's captain Magdalena Eriksson has committed her long-term future to the club by signing a contract extension to keep her at the Blues until 2023," the club said in a statement.

Eriksson has become an integral part of Emma Hayes' side since joining in 2017 and was made captain ahead of the 2019/20 campaign. The Sweden international marked her first season as Chelsea skipper by leading her side to a domestic double, winning the League Cup before being crowned FA Women's Super League champions.

After inking a new deal, Eriksson expressed delight and said: "There is nowhere else in the world I would rather be."

"It means everything to me to be at this club, there is nowhere else in the world I would rather be. We have everything here," the club's official website quoted Eriksson as saying.

"We have an amazing team, we have an amazing squad and we have a good group of people around the team to support us. It's the ideal place to be and I couldn't see myself being anywhere else," she added. (ANI)
