Liverpool FC Women have brought back Belgium international Yana Daniels after the 29-year-old wingers spent two seasons with Bristol City.

Manager Matt Beard, who worked with Daniels at Bristol City last season, told liverpoolfc.com: “Yana’s a great player, first and foremost. She’s a little bit different to the players we have in the front positions at the moment.

“Yana can come in off the line, she’s good in the air, she’s a very technically gifted football player and she can create and score goals.

“This is a unique football club and Yana’s experience of being here before and understanding the pressures and what it means to be a Liverpool football player is something else we took into account.

“She was outstanding for me at Bristol and she’s a great person as well.”

Daniels, who has 44 caps for Belgium, commented: “It feels good to be back! I enjoyed my time at Bristol City and it was a tough end to the season there.

“The style Matt plays just suits me, I like it and I just feel comfortable with the way he wants to play.

“To come back here and try to help put this club where it belongs, and the philosophy of Matt, just suits me. I believe that he can achieve something big here with his ability as a manager.”
