Club careerEdit

SunndalEdit

Born in Sunndalsøra, Møre og Romsdal, Reiten grew up in the village of Nordmøre and began her senior career with her local side Sunndal, then in the second division of the Norwegian football.[2][3][4][5]

KattemEdit

At age 16, Reiten joined Toppserien side Kattem in 2011.[6] During her year-and-a-half spell with Kattem, she made 35 league appearances and scored 11 goals in her second season, becoming the club's 2012 top scorer.[7][4][5]

Trondheims-ØrnEdit

After Kattem pulled out of the Toppserien, Reiten joined Trondheims-Ørn in 2013. During her four seasons with Trondheims, Reiten made 82 league appearances and scored 25 goals. With Trondheims-Ørn, she has also reached the final of the 2014 Norwegian Women's Cup.[8][4][5]

LSK KvinnerEdit

She then transferred to Toppserien side LSK Kvinner for the 2017 season.[9] During her two-and-a-half seasons with the club, she made 53 league appearances, scoring 51 goals in the process. With LSK Kvinner, Reiten was a back-to-back Toppserien league winner in 2017, also winning the Toppserien's regular season golden boot in the same season.[10] Reiten and LSK Kvinner repeated both these feats in 2018, including winning the 2018 Norway Women's Cup.[4][11] Reiten also went on to win the 2018 Toppserien Player of the Year and Goal of the Year awards.[2][12] At her time of departing LSK Kvinner, Reiten was the Toppserien's leading top scorer for the 2019 season.[13][4][5]

ChelseaEdit

On 31 May 2019, Reiten signed with the FA Women's Super League side Chelsea.[14] It was reported that the transfer fee was around £12,000.[15]

International careerEdit

Reiten has represented Norway at all youth international levels.[5] She made her full international debut for Norway in January 2014, against Spain. She was a member of the Norwegian squad at UEFA Women's Euro 2017.[16] In March 2019, Reiten was in the Norwegian squad that went on to win the 2019 Algarve Cup.
