Jade Bailey – an England Under-23 international – can also play in defence

Liverpool Women have signed midfielder Jade Bailey from fellow Women’s Super League side Chelsea.

The 23-year-old started her career at Arsenal and helped them win the Women’s FA Cup in 2013 and 2014.

Bailey switched to Chelsea in 2016, but spent much of the 2018-19 WSL season on loan at Reading.

“We wanted a young, talented individual to add quality and depth to our midfield,” manager Vicky Jepson Bailey told the Liverpool website.
