Liverpool have signed Danish Under-23 international defender Nina Pedersen, subject to international clearance.
The Women's Super League Champions have secured the signature of the central defender from the California Golden Bears in Berkeley (University of California).
Nina is a cultured centre back who has played college football in the United States for the last four years, having previously played at Texas University. The 22-year-old is a current Denmark Under-23 international having previously represented her native country at Under-17 and Under-19 level.
Matt Beard has strengthened his squad following an unbeaten start to the 2014 WSL campaign for the Reds, having won their opening game against Manchester City followed by three successive draws against Chelsea, Notts County and Birmingham City.
Speaking of her move to Liverpool, Nina said: "I am thrilled to be able to join Liverpool and cannot wait to get started. We are the defending champions and go into the second half of the WSL season unbeaten as we look to retain the league title.
"I have always had the ambition to play in England so to be able to sign for the defending Champions was obviously a massive opportunity for me that I could not turn down. The team have got an excellent defensive record so far this season and hopefully I can help to improve that even more."
Matt Beard added: "This is a really exciting signing for Liverpool Ladies as she is a highly rated defender who is comfortable on the ball so will adapt to our style of play effortlessly.
"I am delighted to have been able to have acquired Nina as she will give us more options in defence and is also able to play in midfield so her versatility will be crucial as we look to retain our WSL title."
