Sunderland AFC Women have signed 20-year-old former Leicester City attacker Ellen Jones following a successful trial.

Jones originally played with Bristol City in the WSL, before a spell with Colorado Buffaloes in the NCAA Division 1 in 2021.

She later moved to Leicester City but went on loan to Coventry United and made the Wales senior squad in April.

Head Coach Mel Reay told “Ellen spent a week with us leading into the Celtic game and showed us what she is all about. She can play off both feet, has a good engine, a tenacious work ethic and an impressive attitude to learn. She will add further depth to our attacking options.”
