·1 min read

LONDON — Canadian international Shelina Zadorsky has extended her stay with England's Tottenham.

The 28-year-old defender from London, Ont., joined the FA Women’s Super League team in August from the NWSL's Orlando Pride on a loan deal that expired at the end of 2020.

She has now signed a contract that runs through the end of Spurs' current season.

"It was an easy decision to make," Zadorsky told the club website. “I’m really looking forward to the rest of the season, we have so much potential as a team and I am excited to be part of the journey."

Zadorsky has made 11 appearances for Spurs, who stand eighth in the 12-team league at 2-4-3.

The centre back appeared in 39 games with Orlando after being acquired in a trade with the Washington Spirit prior to the 2018 season. Before her two seasons in Washington, the University of Michigan product played club soccer in Australia with the Perth Glory and in Sweden with Vittsjo GIK.

Zadorsky has won 66 caps for Canada.
