Vanessa Gilles extends with Lyon and will stay with the reigning French champions at least until June 2025.
The 27-year-old joined Lyon in 2022 from Angel City. Initially as a loan for one season, her stay in France is now extended until the end of the next one. The Canadian centre-back previously also played for West Ottawa and Apollon Limassol in Cyprus. Gilles also spent four seasons with Lyon’s league rivals, Bordeaux.
“It’s a dream to be here. I found a little family here and I didn’t hesitate at all,” said Gilles, who joins Christiane Endler as the latest contract renewal.
