Chelsea Women sign Australian star Sam Kerr

Australian striker Sam Kerr has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Chelsea Women in what will be her first foray into Europe.

The 26-year-old has split her time between the United States and Australia since 2013 - most recently lining up for NWSL side Chicago Red Stars and W-League club Perth Glory.

Kerr, who was recently placed third in Goal's top 50 female footballers, has enjoyed an outstanding 2019 and arrives at the Blues in red-hot form.

The Matildas skipper was named the NWSL MVP for a second time this year as she set a record for most goals scored in the competition.
