Former Arsenal forward Vivianne Miedema will stay in the Women's Super League following her departure from the Gunners at the end of the 2023/24 season.

Miedema has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with Manchester City, who finished second in the WSL last season.

The WSL's all-time leading goalscorer will link up with the likes of Khadija 'Bunny' Shaw, Lauren Hemp, Chloe Kelly and Jill Roord at the Joie Stadium.

Miedema said: “The reason I chose City is because they have the same ambitions as me. They want to win the league and titles.“

"Looking to the future, I’ve always said I want to play with best players in the world and I think City have got that.

"I haven’t played as much football as I would have wished over the past two years, but I think and hope my best years are still to come. I hope I’m going to be able to help the team as much as I can do.“

"I am just really excited to be part of the team and for the girls to hopefully help me and get me back to my best. If I get back to my best again then we can achieve really nice things together.

“I do think this is the place to be right now. In the end, it was an easy choice for me. I want to challenge myself every day in training, but also every single week in the games we play.”
