Southampton FC Women have signed 26-year-old Jamaica international forward Atlanta Primus from London City Lionesses.

The former Chelsea and California State University player made 58 appearances for London City and was capped up to U-19 level by England before opting instead to play for the Reggae Girlz.

Primus told “I’m super excited to be here! I’m ready to get going and excited for the season to start.

“From the staff to the players, I think there’s something special here and I wanted to be a part of that.”

Head coach Marieanne Spacey-Cale said: “I’m delighted to get Atlanta into our squad. She brings a strong attacking threat along with a clever football mind.

“Fresh from the World Cup those experiences have added to her development into a top player.”
