Brighton & Hove Albion have signed Matilde Skovsen (20) on a one-year contract from Danish Elitedivisionen side VSK Aarhus, subject to international clearance.

Manager Hope Powell told the club’s website, “We are delighted to welcome Matilde to the club, as she is a player that we have been tracking for some time.

“For someone so young, she has already gained plenty of experience playing at the top level in Denmark and will add to the competition for places in the defensive areas.”

Skovsen also had a spell at Paris St Germain, and was part of the Denmark squad that reached the semi-finals of the UEFA U-19 Championship in 2018.
