Chelsea forward Ji So-Yun has signed a new long term contract with the club according to The Blues’ official website.

The 28-year-old Seoul-born attacker has been with the South West Londoners since 2014 and she has now penned a new contract with the club.

It has been reported that Ji has agreed to extend her stay at Kingsmeadow until summer 2022, a significant contract for a player in the FA Women’s Super League.

Ji joined Chelsea from Japanese club INAC Kobe Leonessa and the player went on to score the winning goal in the SSE Women’s FA Cup final at Wembley the following year. The Blues beat Notts County 1-0 at the national stadium to go on to lift the trophy for the first time.

The forward has since gone on to win the FA Women’s Super League and 2017 FA Women’s Super League Spring Series with Chelsea while she has picked up¬†another SSE Women’s FA Cup winners’ medal. Ji is well on her way to making 150 appearances for The Blues after becoming a centurion 16 months ago.

The South Korean national team’s all-time record goalscorer is a favourite of Blues boss Emma Hayes and the player clearly has a significant role to play for the club after signing her new deal.
