Everton have signed England Women’s U-21 goalkeeper Sandy MacIver on an 18-month deal from Clemson Tigers in the USA.

The 21-year-old former Everton Academy player, who had a season with Manchester City before a three-year scholarship at Clemson, gained her first senior England call up in August 2019 for two friendlies.

She had been part of the England squad that finished third at the 2018 U-20 World Cup and won the Golden Glove at the tournament.

“It’s a great feeling to join Everton again,” she told evertonfc.com. “My time here in the Academy was really good, I learnt a lot and now I’m really happy to be back.

“I think I’ve really matured both on and off the pitch during my time away and I think the ambition of this club is clear from where we are in the table heading into the second half of the season and the competition from the young players pushing up and the experienced players, too.

“I think we’ve got to push for Champions League qualification and I think we can compete with the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal. With the direction that the club is going, we have got the potential to be in and around that category of teams.”
