“Erin has proven herself a top professional playing in The NWSL who is determined to work hard, and I am confident we will see the best of her in the English game.”

Simon, who signed for Sky Blue in 2016, said: “I’m looking forward to taking in this different culture and the different style of play. To be a part of the culture that lives and breathes football is just so exciting to be a part of. I’m excited to be a part of the culture and learn a different style of football.”
