London City Lionesses have signed 26-year-old defender Paige Culver from Frauen Bundesliga outfit Turbine Potsdam.

The American has also played for top-flight sides in Italy, France and Sweden; Pink Bari, Soyaux, Bordeaux and Kalmar.

Culver told “England is such a growing environment for women’s football and it felt like a really exciting opportunity when I spoke with the coaches about the project they are working on here.

“I’ve dipped my hand into a lot of different leagues, which has been great. You learn a lot while moving around different countries, so I’m excited to be here, settle in, and bring my experience from those leagues to help the team and prove myself here.”

Head coach Carolina Morace added: “Paige has a lot of experience and has played professionally in many countries around Europe.

“We needed an expert player to join us at centre-back and I think she will help us a lot because it is a long season and it is also important to have many players who are comfortable in her position.

“The centre-back position has changed the most in the last decade, with how how many passes those are players to expected to complete. She’s tall, and we like that, and we are confident she will fit into our style of play.”
