Leicester City have signed 27-year-old former USA U-23 international Erin Simon from Racing Louisville, subject to international clearance.

The defender earlier spent two years with West Ham and helped them reach the Vitality Women’s FA Cup Final in 2019.

Simon told LCFC TV: “I am excited to be back in the UK. Everyone here has been incredible so far and very welcoming. I am looking forward to spending more time with my team-mates.

“Lydia [Bedford] has an awesome mindset and a great perspective of the game. I am really excited to be working with her and being a part of this team. This season will see us push to reach higher standards, and we definitely want to climb the table.”
