Arsenal have announced they have captured the signature of prolific goalscorer Helen Lander from Watford.
The 22-year-old played for England at Under-23 level but has since switched allegiance to that of her maternal grandparents and made her full international debut for Wales earlier this season, with two goals in three appearances to date.
Lander has spent her playing career with the Hornets having joined the club aged nine and was handed the role of club captain two seasons ago in recognition of her influence both on and off the pitch. After enjoying a good start to the 2008-09 season, Helen has joined the Gunners looking to take the next step in her career and will wear the number 20 shirt for her new club.
On her arrival, she told www.arsenal.com: "I've been with Watford for a long time, so it's obviously a big decision to leave but I'm really excited about the challenge of joining Arsenal. Their pedigree is well known both domestically and in Europe, and I can't wait to get started with the match against Colchester United in the FA Cup at Boreham Wood."
Arsenal manager Vic Akers said of the centre forward: "We've always looked at Helen and wanted to bring her to the Club if the opportunity arose. She's a proven goalscorer, getting four against Blackburn recently which is no small achievement. We're looking forward to welcoming her to Arsenal Ladies and hope that she extends her goalscoring run here and helps us secure some trophies this season."
