Liverpool have secured the signature of Finland international defender Emma Koivisto, who had been at Brighton & Hove Albion for 18 months.
The 27-year-old previously had three successful years with Gothenburg in Sweden and has around 70 caps for her country.
Manager Matt Beard told liverpoolfc.com: “Emma will first of all bring versatility as she has played in numerous positions while at Brighton.
“Left-back, right-back, she’s played wide, but we see her best position as the wing-back position.
“She’s a good one-v-one defender, technically she’s very good on the ball, very athletic, quick and can get up and down. I just think the way that we play, she’s going to fit in perfectly with her attacking attributes.”
Koivisto commented: “I feel really honoured to be able to play for Liverpool. Me and my brother used to be big Liverpool fans growing up because Sami Hyypia, a Finnish legend, was playing for the club when we were kids.
“I’m quite a versatile player, I’m quite an attacking-minded full-back, I like to go forward. Hopefully I can help the team there and defend as well.”
