Arsenal have completed the signing of Canadian international goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo on a permanent transfer.

The 29 year-old joins the Gunners following a four-year spell with Swedish side Vittsjo GIK in the Damallsvenskan.

She began her career with Toronto Lady Lynx in 2010 before crossing the border to represent South Carolina Gamecocks at college level in the United States.

D’Angelo then joined Western New York Flash in 2015 and won the National Women’s Soccer League crown in 2016, before moving in 2017 to North Carolina Courage, where she won consecutive NWSL Shields in 2017 and 2018 in addition to her second NWSL title in 2018.

The move to Vittsjo GIK in Sweden followed in 2019, with Sabrina making 70 appearances in total for the Damallsvenskan side.

In addition to her domestic football, Sabrina has also won 24 caps for the Canadian national team, having become a full Canada international in 2016.

“It feels amazing – it’s an honour to be here and I’m so excited to get started with the team,” said Sabrina. “This is an incredibly exciting time for Arsenal Women and I want to help the team to win trophies and achieve success for our wonderful supporters.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “We’re delighted to have signed Sabrina. She is a top goalkeeper with plenty of experience in both Europe and North America and we’re confident that she will be a strong addition to our squad.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Sabrina is an excellent goalkeeper and a great character so we are very pleased to have brought her to Arsenal. She has a proven track record with experience at both club and international level and we look forward to seeing her in action soon.”
