New deal for Jessica Naz
Fri 26 February 2021, 12:45|Tottenham Hotspur
We are delighted to announce that Jessica Naz has signed a new contract with the Club which runs until June, 2022, with the option to extend for a further year.
The 20-year-old attacker rejoined the Club from Arsenal in 2018 having come up through our youth ranks and has made 25 appearances in all competitions for us at senior level to date, scoring four goals.
The England Under-19 international played a key role in our promotion to the WSL in her first season back with us but missed our debut campaign in the top-flight due to an ACL injury sustained during the summer of 2019.
She made her comeback during our 3-1 win against Aston Villa in December, 2020 and is now back to full fitness.
Jess said: “I’m thrilled to sign a new contract and, in a way, it comes as a bit of a relief as well.
“During my rehab, I didn’t want to put any extra pressure on myself or think about my future – my priority was getting back to fitness. Now my future has been decided and I’m getting minutes, my focus is on getting back to the level I was at before my injury.
“When Rehanne (Skinner, Head Coach) came in, it was another boost for me because she’s seen me perform at my best with England at the Euros in 2019, so she knows what I can bring to the team and is challenging me to get back consistently to my previous level.
“My confidence and belief is growing every day and that’s down to Rehanne, the staff and the team around me. There is so much quality in this team and I am proud of how far we have come. I feel like we as players are such a tight-knit group and like a family. We all have different strengths and are pushing each other to perform at our best.
“As a forward, your desire is to score goals and provide assists and I want to help the team win however I can.”
