Sheffield United Women sign versatile forward Mia Enderby from Leeds United’s Regional Talent Centre.

The 16-year-old has also been involved with the England youth teams and can play all across the front line, either on the left wing, right wing or through the middle.

A quick turn of pace and close control, Enderby ended last season in good form for Leeds United’s RTC and has impressed since training with Neil Redfearn’s first team, leading to her involvement in several first team friendlies so far in pre-season.

Enderby scored eight goals in as many games for Leeds towards the end of last season and the teenager is delighted to be making the step up.

“I’m really excited and I’m really honoured to be representing such a big club in the Championship.

I’m so young so it’s a massive change for me but all the players and all the coaches have been so welcoming, my transition has been really good.”

Discussing the latest exciting young addition to the squad, head coach Redfearn added: “She’s an outstanding find. Rich Meek and Shaun Hird have done great to get her over the line. She’s been in the England set up, she’s an unbelievable talent.

“I’ve worked with players in the men’s and women’s game through youth academies who have done well and I look at Mia and she’s got something I don’t see much of, her game understanding is unbelievable.”
