West Ham United Women have made the permanent signing of midfielder Lisa Evans following last season’s loan from Arsenal.

The Scotland international made 22 appearances for the Hammers last season in all competitions, scoring three goals.

Evans told West Ham TV: “I’m delighted to be back with West Ham.

“I knew when my loan was coming to an end that I wanted to be here for the long-term. I really enjoyed being here last season and I felt like it was an unfinished chapter in my life.”

“This is a project that I want to be a part of moving forward, so it was an easy decision for me to come back here.”

Manager Paul Konchesky told whufc.com“Lisa is a fantastic signing.

“Lisa was unlucky with injuries last season and I’m not sure we saw the best of her. This being said, there is no denying that when she did play, her performances had a massive impact on the team and our success.

“She’s a massive asset on and off the pitch and she’s exactly the sort of player that we need at this football club.”
