England youth international goalkeeper, Fran Stenson, has joined Arsenal from Manchester City on what the Gunners say is a long-term deal.

The 18-year-old goalkeeper started her career at Birmingham City and made her professional debut in October 2017 as a substitute in a 2–1 win over Everton in the FA WSL.

She joined Manchester City in 2018 and played her first game for them in the Conti Cup against Aston Villa in December 2018.

In February 2019, she joined Blackburn Rovers on loan to cover for a keeper injury crisis.

An England international, she has represented her country at U-15s, U-16s and U-17s, playing six times for the latter.
