Crystal Palace Women have secured the services of former England U-23 international Coral-Jade Haines from Tottenham Hotspur.

Haines spent three seasons with Spurs following a five-year spell at Birmingham City, whom she helped reach the Champions League semi-finals.

Haines told cpfc.co.uk: “The club has the drive and tools to do well in the Championship this year.

“The coaches have implemented a learning environment – their attention to the technical detail is the best I have experienced for a long time. I’ve learnt a few things already and I can’t wait to add more to my game and hopefully help the club have a successful year.”

Manager Dean Davenport said: “At just 24, it is remarkable the amount of experience Coral-Jade already has and arriving with Champions League appearances under her belt will inspire the squad with similar aspirations.

“The early signs in training are good; she has slotted in well. Her versatility in midfield and up top will be hugely beneficial to us.”
