Manchester United Women have signed England international Nikita Parris from Arsenal on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old, who has 67 international caps,  told manutd.com: “It feels unbelievable to be here. It’s been quite a summer, and this tops it off. Manchester United is an historic club who are making big movements in the WSL and I can’t wait to be a part of our future success.

“With my winning mentality in matches and training, I want to help this team move forward and grow. I’m not the only new signing this summer, which shows the intention of the club to do exactly that.”

Head coach Marc Skinner added: “Nikita’s winning pedigree will be a great addition to our team.

“She is a proven winner on both the domestic and international stage and will bring a real maturity to the environment.

“Securing a player of Nikita’s calibre cements this great club’s ambition for the season ahead and we look forward to welcoming her into pre-season, after a well-deserved rest!”
