The Camden-born coach led Chelsea to this term’s Women’s Champions League final where they fell to a 4-0 defeat to Spain’s top-flight giants Barcelona.  

Hayes, who has been at the helm of the Kingsmeadow side since 2012, was on a three-and-a-half-year contract agreed in 2017-18 which was due to expire this year. 

However, the former Arsenal assistant manager is determined to build a legacy at the Blues. 

And Telegraph Sport reports she has the wholehearted backing of the Chelsea hierarchy.

It is claimed Hayes – who had reportedly not put pen to paper earlier this term – had wanted to focus leading her side on a successful campaign in Europe and retaining their Women’s Super League crown. 

Chelsea, who face Everton in the Women’s FA Cup fifth round, have lost just one game in the WSL this term.

And Chelsea, who lost to the Toffees in the quarter-finals of last season’s FA Cup, are targeting a treble trophy this year. 

Hayes decision to lengthen her reign as Chelsea boss will come as a welcome boost to the club who are looking to bounce back from their first ever Champions League defeat.

The charismatic Blues boss is highly regarded by Blues owner Roman Abramovich, the club’s fans, senior figures and followers of the women’s game.

Prior to joining Chelsea Hayes enjoyed a two-year spell working as an assistant manager to legendary Arsenal Ladies boss Vic Akers from 2006 to 2008

It was there that the Kingsmeadow gaffer got her first taste of European glory, helping the North London giants become the first English side to win a Champions League trophy in 2007.
