West Ham United have signed Australia international centurion Katrina Gorry following her departure from Damallsvenskan side Vittsjö GIK.

The 31-year-old midfielder has 105 caps for her country and played at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals, one of six major tournaments she has appeared in.

Gorry told West Ham TV: “The Women’s Super League is the league everyone is speaking about at the moment. I want to challenge myself and play against and with the best players in the world.

“I will work hard, try to control the game and do whatever I can to help the team both on and off the pitch. I am very proud and grateful to be here and really excited by what’s ahead.”

Manager Rehanne Skinner told whufc.com: “Katrina is a tenacious, hard-working midfielder who takes real pride in her defensive work and protecting the backline. In possession, she will also help to bring a lot of quality and creativity to our play.

“We wanted to use this transfer window to add leadership to the squad and Katrina has this in abundance.

“As a player who has had a wealth of experience in the domestic and international game, I have no doubt that Katrina’s professionalism will be an asset to our squad moving forwards.”
