Transfer News:Baltimore becomes Blues’ second signing of the summer

The 24-year-old becomes Chelsea’s second signing in the post-Emma Hayes era, with Sonia Bampastor now at the helm.

Speaking to Chelsea’s club channels, Baltimore said: “I’m very happy to join Chelsea. It feels incredible. I have always wanted to play for Chelsea and now look, it has happened!

“I’ve played against Sonia in France. It is true she’s a very strong manager with a very good record. She is a good coach and has won a lot.

Chelsea have completed the signing of versatile forward Sandy Baltimore from Paris Saint-Germain on a four-year contract.

Baltimore departs PSG after making nearly 200 appearances for the club, while she has also been capped 28 times by the French national team to this point.

“When I was at PSG, the games against Lyon were always difficult. They were always very good battles. I am excited to work together with Sonia at Chelsea .”

Baltimore is not the only France international on Chelsea’s books, with Eve Perisset a core part of the Blues’ first team, while she also played alongside Ashley Lawrence at PSG.

“I have known Eve for a very long time,” Baltimore added. “We played together at PSG and we see each other a lot with the national team, and now we’re both here playing for Chelsea. We spoke before I signed for the club and she gave me a lot of good advice. She told me that if I come to Chelsea then I am definitely going to love it.

“It is important for me to have those relationships when coming to a new club. They can help me adapt with things like the language and living in a new city and with things on the pitch.

“Knowing them gives me more confidence for when I am playing. It will help me feel a bit freer to focus on the football.”
