Liverpool FC Women have signed Republic of Ireland international defender Megan Campbell following her five-year spell at Manchester City.
Manager Matt Beard told Liverpoolfc.com: “Meg offers a bit of versatility as she can play centre-back or left-back.
“Obviously her long throw is well-documented in the game and with players like Furney [Rachel Furness] in our team, it will be a good weapon for us.
“She’s a fantastic footballer who’s been a bit unlucky with injuries over the last year or so, and I think it just fits for us and it fits for her.
“It’s another player who knows how to win things and has been involved in a club that is challenging. Her experience is going to be very valuable for us this campaign.”
The 27-year-old full-back, who has more than 40 caps for her country, said: “I’ve played and trained with a lot of successful players from different cultures, Olympic medal winners, World Cup winners, European winners, so I’ve been around it and seen what it takes to get to the top and stay at the top.
“Matt has been great for me and when he contacted me and said he wanted to bring me here, that was brilliant for me – hearing a manager wanted me so badly.
“I know the girls, from seeing a few interviews and stuff, were quite disappointed not getting promoted last year, and I know they will have fire in their bellies and are ready to push on now.”
