Aston Villa have signed England international Rachel Daly on a three-year deal from Houston Dash for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old played at left-back throughout the Euros but has experience further forward at club level.

Manager Carla Ward told avfc.co.uk: “This is a big signing for us and one we’ve worked hard on completing. Rachel is a top forward and a proven goalscorer.”

“Having performed admirably at full-back this summer, she showed us that she is a player you simply need in your team.”

“But for us, she is a forward and we can’t wait to see her scoring goals.”
