Izzy Christiansen has committed her future to Everton, signing a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the Club until the end of June 2023.
England international Christiansen joined the Blues from European champions Lyon last January.
The 29-year-old has swiftly emerged as a hugely influential member of Willie Kirk’s talented side, delivering a succession of all-action midfield performances.
Christiansen has hit four goals in 12 WSL appearances for the Blues this term and helped the team reach the 2020 FA Cup final.
Christiansen began her senior career at Everton in 2008 before enjoying successful spells at Birmingham City, Manchester City and French giants Lyon.
A former PFA Women’s Players’ Player of the Year, she has won 31 senior caps for England.
Everton manager Willie Kirk said: “I’m delighted to get Izzy’s contract extended with the Club.
“I’ve loved working with her since she arrived just over a year ago. From day one she has challenged and improved our standards and shows great leadership on and off the pitch.
“She had a slow start to her time after picking up a couple of niggly injuries almost immediately but since returning to the pitch it has been clear for all to see her undoubted quality.
“She is technically fantastic, physically in great condition and, tactically, way ahead of most players.
“Izzy will be pivotal to the success that we are trying to bring to the Club.”
Everton Sporting and Commercial Director Sarvar Ismailov added: “Izzy is a phenomenal player. She is still hungry after already having achieved so much in football.
“She is a great leader in the team both on and off the pitch.
“We are delighted to continue our journey together to new success.”
