Vyan Sampson has signed a professional contract for Charlton Athletic Women.
The 25-year-old becomes Karen Hills’ fourth signing of the summer transfer window.
Sampson has made one international appearance for Jamaica. She joined the Addicks in January and impressed during the second half of the 2020-21 campaign.
Sampson told Charlton’s club website: “I’m really happy and really excited, especially off the back of last season. I’m just really happy to get started now.”
Karen Hills said: “Vyan featured regularly for us towards the end of last season and really cemented her place in the team. With experience playing professionally, Vyan is a superb signing for us and I’m looking forward to the season ahead.”
Charlton Women’s owner Thomas Sandgaard added: “I’m really pleased we’ve been able to sign Vyan. She added a lot to the team when she joined the club last season, so it was important we were able to bring her back to be a part of this exciting new era.”
