The Finnish international started her senior career aged 16 with HJK, going on to play for FC Honka and Haland United before two years in Denmark with Fortuna Hjorring.

She moved to Brescia in 2017 and the club was later acquired by AC Milan, with whom Heroum made40 appearances.

Heroum has over 70 caps for her country and has won domestic honours in all three countries where she has played.

Head coach Hope Powell told “We’re really delighted to have brought in a player of Nora’s experience and ability.

“She has played at the top level in what is a really strong domestic set-up in Italy for three seasons and has vast experience of international football as well.

“She is very composed on the ball, has lots of energy and she can get forward and score goals as well. We’re looking forward to working with Nora and we believe she will be a great addition to our squad on and off the pitch.”
