Manchester United have signed 23-year-old strike Signe Bruun on loan from Lyon until the end of the season.

Also previously with Paris Saint-Germain and Fortuna Hjørring, Denmark’s Player of the Year has scored 14 goals in 19 games for her country.

Bruun told “It’s amazing to be here, I’m really happy to be joining Manchester United. It is a big club with huge history, I have followed the women’s project for a while and have seen the progression of the team, and I think this move was a perfect match for me.

“I want to be able to help the team as much as possible during my time here, hopefully with a lot of goals but also a lot of hard work too. I can’t wait to get started on the training pitch with the players and staff ahead of a busy period of games.”

Head coach Marc Skinner said: “We are delighted to welcome Signe to the club, she is an exceptional player, and it really shows the ambition of the club in securing this move. Signe’s talent speaks for itself but her ability to find the narrowest of spaces in the box and be so deadly in front of goal is something that we’re really excited to see.

“She is still so young and will definitely compliment the fantastic talent we already have in this team. She also has that experience of big games, especially in the Champions League, so we’re all looking forward to seeing her thrive here.”
