Leicester City Women have signed Scottish international forward Abbi Grant after the expiry of her contract with Birmingham City.

The 25-year-old has predominantly played in Scotland for the likes of Celtic, Glasgow City and Hibernian but in 2019 helped Anderlecht to a league title.

She has seven caps for Scotland and scored her first goal for her country against Iceland last year.

Grant told LCFC TV: “I’m absolutely delighted to be here; Leicester City is such a huge club and I’ve admired watching the women’s team for a while now.

“I love the direction that the club is going in and as soon as there was some interest, it was something that I wanted to be a part of.”
