Liverpool Women’s Missy Bo Kearns signs a professional contract with the Reds before being loaned to Blackburn Rovers for the rest of the season.
The England U-19 midfielder said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have signed my first pro contract with the club I’ve loved all of my life.
“I’m excited to go to Blackburn and gain some valuable experience playing consistently in a first-team environment.”
Kearns has made five appearances for Liverpool since her debut last March, including scoring her first goal for the club against her new team, Blackburn, in November.
Reds manager Vicky Jepson said: “We’re delighted that Bo is continuing her long association with the club.
“The next stage of her development is regular first-team games and I’m sure she will make the most of her time on loan.”
Meanwhile, Ellie Fletcher has returned to Liverpool from her second loan spell at Sheffield United after suffering a knee injury.
The 20-year-old defender made four appearances or the Blades.
