Emma Hayes' side - who won the league title and the Women's FA Cup in 2015 - are currently second in WSL 1 and face leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

Chelsea manager Hayes added: "Eni has proved to be not only a Chelsea girl in her heart, but someone who has adapted and evolved during my tenure.

"She's a competitor, a serial winner and someone who wants to continue winning year after year. She's the calibre of player we want at this club."

The length of Aluko's new deal has not been disclosed.
