Liverpool have officially announced a deal for former Arsenal and Chelsea women player Niamh Fahey.

The 30-year-old joins the club from French Division 1 Feminine side Bordeaux.

The Ireland international played for Arsenal for six years between 2008 and 2014, winning two league titles, four FA Cups, three WSL Cups and a Premier League Cup during her time with the club that also included a treble in 2009.

The Republic of Ireland international then moved to Chelsea where she won another league title, FA Cup and WSL Cup.

Fahey returns to English football explaining that she was thrilled to be joining the Merseysiders.

On signing for the Reds, she said: “I am absolutely delighted to be returning to the WSL and playing for a club as big as Liverpool Ladies. I am a huge Liverpool FC fan so I cannot wait to pull on the red shirt for the first time.

“I really enjoyed my time in France with Bordeaux but felt as though the time had come to return to the WSL and experience a new challenge. Having spoken to Neil (Redfearn) and listened to the clubs ambitions, I am really confident that we will have a successful season.”

Liverpool Ladies manager Neil Redfearn added: “This is a really important signing for the club as Niamh is a top-class footballer. She has won a number of trophies during her spells with Arsenal Women and Chelsea Women so her experience will be vital for us this season.

“A number of other clubs tried to sign Niamh so we are delighted that she has decided that Liverpool Ladies would be the right club and I am really looking forward to working alongside Niamh.”

The Galway-born defensive midfielder spent eight years at Salthill Davon before embarking on a successful time in top-flight English football, simultaneously making over 50 appearances for Ireland.
