“I’ve had such a great time representing this wonderful football club,” said Jackie.

The 27-year-old has made 92 appearances for Netherlands, scoring nine goals.

“I’m a box-to-box player. My passing is good, but I also make tackles. I think I’m a good blend of attacking and defending,” she told the PSG website.
