Arsenal have completed the signing of Jemma Rose from Bristol Academy.
The 23-year-old defender spent the past four seasons with the Vixens in her second spell with the club, captaining them from summer 2014 and leading them into the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter finals.
An England youth international, Rose was named the FA WSL Young Player of the Year at the 2011 FA Women's Awards. She also collected the Goal of the Season award for her long range free kick against Doncaster Rovers Belles. Plymouth-born Jemma received a call up to the senior England squad earlier this year but is yet to win her first full cap.
Gunners manager Pedro Martinez Losa told www.arsenal.com: "Jemma is a player who will fit in very well at Arsenal. She is a good technical player, able to play out from the back. She is good in the air and athletic too. She is a young player with lots of potential and I look forward to working with her."
Manager Dave Edmondson said: "We're disappointed to lose Jemma after the contribution she has made, both as a player and as a team captain this year. We wish her well in her move to Arsenal.
"As a club we will move on and plans are in place to not only replace players leaving but to strengthen the playing squad for the coming season."
There was better news for Academy in that Welsh international midfielder Sophie Ingle has renewed her contract for next season.
