Arsenal Women forward Caitlin Foord has signed a new contract with the club while Kim Little is set to join OL Reign on a summer loan. Foord joined the club from Portland Thorns and scored her first goal on her debut against Lewes in the FA Cup. Since then she has made a total of 62 appearances for the club while scoring 23 goals.
“It feels amazing. Since I joined this club, I’ve absolutely fallen in love with being here. I think I mentioned in one of my early interviews that I had lost my way in football a bit, but since being here I’ve absolutely fallen in love and found myself again,” Arsenal Women forward Caitlin Foord said. “We’ve been inching towards winning lots of silverware and that’s definitely going to be the plan for next year. We want to win multiple trophies and I think with the squad, the team, the players, and the support we have, we have the squad to be able to do it.”
Arsenal head coach Jonas Eidevall said: “Caitlin is a top player and an integral part of what we’re building here. Her contribution in both attack and defense is crucial to our game, so we’re delighted that she has signed a new contract. This is an ambitious club and Caitlin is central to that.”
Arsenal’s head of women’s football Clare Wheatley said: “We’re all very pleased that Caitlin will be staying with us. She is a wonderful footballer in her peak years, so she is exactly the kind of player we want to keep at this club. We look forward to seeing Caitlin in action for Arsenal in the years to come. Foord may not grab as many headlines as Miedema, but she remains an integral part of the Arsenal project Eidevall.”
