Notts County have completed the signing of forward Kirsty Linnett from Birmingham City.
Linnett, who will wear the number 9 shirt for County, has put pen to paper on a deal until May 2019.
Kirsty started her career at hometown club Leicester City, where she spent six years before signing for Arsenal Ladies at the age of sixteen. From Arsenal, the striker joined Birmingham City ahead of the 2013 FA WSL season, spending four seasons at the Midlands club before leaving to make the short journey across to Meadow Lane. She was a member of the Birmingham team which reached the semi finals of the UEFA Women's Champions League three years ago.
During Kirsty's four years with the Blues, the forward built on previous U17 and U19 call ups for England with seven appearances for the national side's U23s.
Linnett joins the Lady Pies in scoring form having netted six goals in ten appearances in the 2016 FA WSL season.
On joining, the 23-year-old said: "I'm really happy to have signed here at Notts County. I think I needed a new challenge to push my career on and coming to Notts will give me that challenge. I'm delighted to have signed and now I can't wait to get started."
Rick Passmoor added: "Kirsty is a young and exciting forward, who has the ability to score a lot of goals. We're delighted to have been able to bring Kirsty to Notts County. Kirsty is a player with vast experiences of cup finals as well as playing in the Champions League but she's still young, and we believe at Notts she has the potential to flourish and become a top international striker."
Meanwhile, several of Notts County's squad have signed new deals with the club. Jo Potter, Jade Moore, Leanne Crichton and Angharad James have all committed their futures whilst Aileen Whelan has signed a full time contract.
