 Women's Football News 23 Jan 2015
 
Liverpool swoop for African star - 23 Jan 2015 - Women's Football NewsLiverpool Ladies have signed recently named African Women's Player of the Year, Asisat Oshoala. 
 
The FA Women's Super League Champions secured the signature of the highly rated 20-year-old Nigerian international from Nigerian Women's Championship title winners, Rivers Angels.
 
Asisat is an explosive forward who was voted as the most valuable player at the Under-20 World Cup in Canada in 2014 finishing as the top goalscorer as the Falconets finished runners up to Germany.
 
Asisat also helped Rivers Angels to their first league title victory since 2010 as they beat Pelican Stars to the title as well as helping Rivers Angels to retain the Nigerian Women's Cup.
 
Matt Beard's side are currently preparing for the upcoming WSL and Champions League campaigns having retained the title on the final day in 2014.
 
Speaking of her move to Liverpool, Asisat said: "Since I began my football career I have always dreamt of being a professional footballer so to be able to join the reigning Women's Super League champions is absolutely fantastic.
 
"Liverpool Ladies are a massive Club who have some fantastic players who I believe can help to develop my game to the next level. It was also a big incentive to be able to play in the Uefa Women's Champions League which is a huge competition and one I'm confident we can do well in."
 
Liverpool manager Matt Beard added: "I'm absolutely thrilled to have signed Asisat as she is one of the world's top young footballers. Asisat proved in the U20 World Cup what a top class talent she is and this signing is a big coup for us.
 
"The Women's Super League continues to improve year after year so it is vital that we strengthen our squad following last season's successful title defence. This signing is definitely one that the supporters can be extremely excited about."
