Aston Villa Women have signed Northern Ireland international Simone Magill from Everton on a two-year contract.

Magill joined Everton in 2013 and made over 100 appearances in all competitions, scoring 30 goals.

The 27-year-old who has been capped over 60 times by Northern Ireland, becomes Villa’s first summer signing.

Manager Carla Ward told avfc.co.uk: “Simone is someone we have tried to bring in during the last two transfer windows, so to get it over the line is something I’m delighted with.”

“She’s a front-footed player with an eye for goal and someone I feel will fit in brilliantly to what we’re trying to do.”
