Ellen White today signed for Leeds United from Chelsea, to become the Yorkshire side's second summer signing after Carla Cantrell put pen to paper last week.
England under 19 striker Ellen has consistently scored goals for both club and country, including a hat-trick against Poland in a UEFA Under-19 Championships qualifier in April this year as well as being top scorer for Chelsea for the past three seasons.
Ellen has represented England at under-17,19, 20 and more recently under-23 level where Ellen could well form a prolific strike force for both club and country with Leeds' other new signing Carla Cantrell.
Ellen enthused about signing: "I am really pleased to be joining a young talented team in Leeds. I feel extremely lucky to know many of the players through England under-19s and 20s and also those who attend the FA Women's Player Development Centre.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my three seasons at Chelsea Ladies, which has significantly improved my development as a player both at club and International level. I will be disappointed to be leaving the many friends I have made there, however after much consideration; I feel it is now the right time to make the move to a new club.
"Naturally as all players do, I have ambitions and want to win things and over the past two seasons Leeds have demonstrated that they have made great strides into starting to make a challenge on the dominance in female football that Arsenal and Everton have held for a number of years. I want to be part of a team that wins the Premier League title and play in Cup Finals and firmly believe these opportunities will come along for me soon playing for Leeds.
"Their focus is on continual improvement and not accepting second best, whilst enjoying playing great entertaining football as a team. I hope that I will be able to play some key part in Leeds' ongoing transformation and help by doing what I enjoy, scoring goals and being part of a great team into the future.
"It's a really important year for me in terms of International football where I am hoping to be selected in the squads for the UEFA Under-19 Finals in France in July and the Under-20 World Cup in Chile. I feel Leeds have a great understanding of young players needs when balancing Club and International commitments with educational studies and regeneration."
