Chelsea Women sign Swedish winger Kaneryd

Chelsea Women have completed the signing of Sweden international Johanna Rytting Kaneryd on a three-year deal.

Kaneyrd is the WSL champions’ fifth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Kadeisha Buchanan, Eve Perisset, Katerina Svitkova and Lucy Watson.

The 25-year-old, who featured in all five of Sweden’s European Championship matches, joins the Blues from BK Hacken.

“We’ve been watching Johanna develop over the last 12-18 months and she has had an unbelievable season last year in Sweden,” said manager Emma Hayes.

“She’s extremely quick, direct, a great age and she’s the profile player we’ve been looking for.

“Johanna will bring another dynamic to the team and we are really looking forward to her career with us at Chelsea.”
