Liverpool have confirmed the signing of 20-year-old Danish midfielder Sofie Lundgaard from Fortuna Hjorring.

Lundgaard played for the last three years in the Elitedivisionen and has represented her country at U15, U17 and U19 levels.

Manager Matt Beard told “Sofie is an exciting young talent who we’ve been monitoring for the past six months or so.

“I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring her in during the January window and it’s an area we were looking to strengthen in.

“She’s got terrific experience for such a young player – with more than 100 senior games. We’ve been really impressed with her progress so far and are looking forward to seeing how that continues in the future.”

Lundgaard said: “I’m excited, it’s been a pleasure coming here and I’m looking forward to meeting all the girls, getting started and winning some football games.

“I’ve heard a lot of times that this group is a good group and this is a club with ambitions, and I’m looking forward to being a part of it.

“When I spoke with Russ [Fraser] and Matt, I had no doubt that this club was a good option for me.”
