Drew Spence has joined Tottenham Hotspur Women on a free transfer after 14 years at Chelsea.

She has signed a two-year contract, with an option to trigger one further season.

The 29-year-old midfielder has won the Women’s Super League five times, along with three FA Cup trophies, and was Chelsea’s longest serving player.

However, the club announced in May that they would not be renewing her contract.

Spence made two appearances for England in 2015 before switching her international allegiance to Jamaica, who she will represent in World Cup qualifiers next month.

Tottenham finished fifth in the WSL last season.

Speaking after joining the club, Spence said: “I'm really excited. It's a new chapter for me. I've seen how much the team has progressed over the past few seasons, challenging teams at the top, so it's the right move for me and somewhere where I can bring all my experience.

“I know how to win titles, I know what it's like to be in a dressing room where there is a winning mentality every day and hopefully that's something I can bring here.”

Head coach Rehanne Skinner added: “Drew is a fantastic addition to the squad we are building. Her achievements in the WSL have been significant, having been involved in the league since the start in 2011.

“She brings a huge amount of experience and understanding of winning, having been a part of 11 trophy-winning teams. As a midfielder, Drew is creative, tenacious and capable of unlocking defences in a number of ways, and will be an asset to the team.”
