England forward Chloe Kelly has signed for Manchester City Women on a free transfer, having rejected a contract offer from Everton in June.
The 22-year-old scored nine goals in the Women’s Super League last season before the coronavirus pandemic saw the campaign brought to an early end, with Everton finishing sixth.
She turned down the offer of a new contract from the Toffees, opting to leave the club after a three-year stint.
Kelly made her England debut in 2018 and was part of the England Women squad at the SheBelieves Cup in February, featuring in all three games for the Lionesses.
Man City, who finished as runners-up to Chelsea in the curtailed WSL season, now have 10 regular England internationals on their books including captain Steph Houghton and record appearance-maker Jill Scott.
