Liverpool ladies have officially announced the signing of Sheffield United goalkeeper Fran Kitching to Anfield.
Kitching, whose family are life-long Blades fans, was signed from Sheffield ahead of the Women’s Super League Championship season.
The England U20 international joined Watford on a one-year loan deal in 2017, before returning to Sheffield United earlier this summer.
“I am delighted to have joined such a big club and I’m really looking forward to the new season,” she said.
“The move came about really quickly as I only recently moved back to Sheffield United Women but this was an opportunity I could not turn down.”
Liverpool FC Women’s manager Neil Redfearn said: “I am really excited at the prospect of working alongside Fran.
“She is an ambitious and extremely talented young goalkeeper who will push Anke [Preuss] and Becky [Flaherty] for the No.1 spot.”
