I’m looking forward to competing with the talented players the club has brought together and make the fans proud.”

She has many great qualities so I wasn’t surprised that a number of clubs were competing for her signature. The experience she has gained at clubs throughout the world will be important to us and I look forward to working with her.”

Zaneta Wyne played for Sunderland in 2017-18.
