Crystal Palace Women have snapped up right-back Ffion Morgan, from fellow Championship side Coventry United Ladies.
The 20-year-old is regarded to be one of the finest talents in the Championship.
She began her career with Ammanford and Cardiff City before joining Coventry in 2019.
She made her international debut for Wales in 2017 against Northern Ireland and has been a regular in Jayne Ludlow’s side to date.
Eagles manager Dean Davenport said: “Ffion was one of the opposition players that stood out to us last year.
“Therefore, when the opportunity to sign her came up, the club knew it was one that they needed to make happen”
“Having someone arrive with her international pedigree [nine caps for Wales] will be a big bonus to the side on and off the pitch; a great statement signing.”
Morgan, who obtained her UEFA B coaching license whilst recovering from an ACL injury at 17, cannot wait to get started in South London.
She said: “I’m super-excited to be part of the team at Crystal Palace. I’m looking forward to a successful season as an Eagle. “
She is Crystal Palace’s third summer signing alongside Kate Natkiel and Chloe Morgan.
