Republic of Ireland international midfielder Megan Connolly has completed a transfer to Brighton and Hove Albion.
The 21-year-old has signed a contract until the end of the season, and is eligible to make her debut in Sunday’s FA Women’s Super League match away at Manchester City.
Brighton boss Hope Powell said, “We are delighted to bring in a young player of Megan’s quality to the club.
“I am very much looking forward to working with Megan, and would like to welcome her to the club.”
Connolly spent more than three years playing college football for Florida Seminoles, which she combined with a four-year scholarship to study Sports Management at Florida University.
