​DONE DEAL: Man City women swoop for Birmingham forward White

Manchester City have signed England striker Ellen White from fellow Women's Super League side Birmingham City on a two-year contract.

In 80 senior international games, the 30 year old has scored 28 goals and was the WSL's top scorer in 2017-18.

Manchester City won both the Women's FA Cup and Continental Cup this season but finished runners-up to Arsenal in the WSL.

"I can't wait to get started, to meet everyone and to get on the pitch," former Arsenal striker White said. "I still want to learn, I still want to develop and I think I'm really going to do that here.

"I want to be in an environment and with a group of players that have that same winning mentality, that same professionalism, that same commitment and passion, and I think that's a great fit at City."
