Aston Villa Women have signed Northern Ireland international Simone Magill from Everton on a two-year contract.

Magill joined Everton in 2013 and made over 100 appearances in all competitions, scoring 30 goals.

The 27-year-old who has been capped over 60 times by Northern Ireland, becomes Villa’s first summer signing.

Manager Carla Ward told “Simone is someone we have tried to bring in during the last two transfer windows, so to get it over the line is something I’m delighted with.”

“She’s a front-footed player with an eye for goal and someone I feel will fit in brilliantly to what we’re trying to do.”
