Liverpool Women sign striker Flint from Leicester

Liverpool Women have confirmed the signing of striker Natasha Flint from Leicester.

The 26-year-old joins the club having spent the second half of last season on loan at Celtic Women in Scotland.

Flint scored 25 goals in her 63 games with the Foxes, including top scoring as they won promotion back to the Women's Super League in 2020/21.

Her time in Scotland included the winning goal in the Scottish Women's FA Cup semi-final and the opening goal in the final as Celtic beat Rangers.

Flint said: "It feels amazing, no other words, I'm really looking forward to it.

"Hopefully I can bring here what I had at Leicester and hopefully bring some goals. I think my time at Celtic has developed me massively and speaking to Matt Beard he thinks I can do that even more here which I think so too."

Liverpool manager Beard added: "Natasha is a proven goal scorer. I've known her for a long time and actually tried to sign her when I was here before.

"When she left Leicester to go to Celtic I was monitoring her there and she just seemed happy, and she was scoring goals.

"The thing with Natasha is she's versatile, she can play any of the front three positions, she can play midfield as well, so to have that little bit of flexibility is good for me.

"One of our issues last year was converting the chances we made so it was important we brought in someone who can score goals and create competition for places as well."
