Manchester United have signed Wales international defender Gemma Evans on a permanent deal following her departure from Reading.

The experienced defender, who has over 50 caps for Wales, was ranked third-highest in the WSL for shots blocked last season.

Gemma Evans told “It’s a massive honour to sign here. It’s something I’ve dreamt about. The ambition of the club is what brought me here. Seeing how well the girls did last year was amazing. It’s just an unbelievable feeling to be here now. The progression of the club is something I want to be onboard with and help build on the amazing foundations already here.”

Head coach Marc Skinner said: “Gemma will bring a wealth of experience to our playing squad and offer even more versatility to our playing style. Her international credentials and WSL experience will help us, as we navigate multiple competitions. We are delighted to welcome Gemma into our Manchester United family.”
