Liverpool re-sign title-winning captain Bonner

Former Liverpool captain and Women's Super League champion Gemma Bonner will return to the club for a second spell beginning January 1.

The 31-year-old defender led Liverpool to back-to-back WSL titles in 2013 and 2014 before leaving for Manchester City in 2018.

The festive timing of the club's announcement is appropriate: Leeds-born Bonner, who joins from National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) side Racing Louisville, once wrote to Santa Claus to ask for a Liverpool kit for Christmas.

Bonner, who has been capped 11 times by England, said: "It's a pretty special moment for me. I still pinch myself when I'm coming into Anfield.

"I'm super excited to be back and I can't wait to pull the shirt on again and get out there with the girls and get back playing for Liverpool.

"I was here for quite a while before and it was a hard decision to leave, but I think I always knew within myself that one day I would love to come back to Liverpool. Now the time feels right.

One of the proudest things I've done is lifting those trophies, especially back-to-back
