England Keeper Roebuck Joins Barca from Man City

England goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck has joined Barcelona from Manchester City on a deal which runs until June 2026.

Roebuck, 24, made more than 100 appearances for City and has 11 international caps.

The Sheffield-born keeper was part of England's Euro 2022-winning squad and has signed for Barca after her City contract expired.

Roebuck told the Barcelona website: "I am very excited. I'd been waiting for this chance for a long time. I'm very happy to be here.

"You could say that now everything fits and this was the perfect time to come."

Roebuck made her senior debut for City on the final day of the 2016 WSL season, where they were crowned champions.

Earlier this year she posted on social media to say she was on the "road to recovery" after having a stroke.

Roebuck's England team-mate Khiara Keating emerged as City's number-one keeper in 2023-24.
