“I’m very happy to join Chelsea. It feels incredible. I have always wanted to play for Chelsea and now look, it has happened!” said Baltimore, expressing her excitement about the move from Paris to London.

Chelsea’s general manager Paul Green commented on the new signing: “We are delighted to bring Sandy to Chelsea. She is an exciting wide player who will give more balance to the squad, adding another naturally left-footed player.”

Green also highlighted Baltimore’s experience: “Sandy has gained a wealth of experience in France, including within the UEFA Women’s Champions League, and will bring more competition to the squad. We are looking forward to seeing her in Chelsea blue.”

Baltimore made her debut for PSG in the 2016/17 campaign. Despite her young age, she has an impressive CV, including one French league title, three French cups, and 43 appearances in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Her talents were recognised at the end of the 2020/21 season when she was named the Young Player of the Season at the D1 Arkema awards.

At the international level, Baltimore has earned 28 caps for the French national team and has been named in the squad for their next set of international fixtures.
