Chelsea manager Emma Hayes has bolstered her squad with the signing of defender Deanna Cooper. The 23-year-old joins from London Bees after a successful trial and will join the squad in Portugal for this week's warm weather training.
Having begun her career with Gillingham, Cooper previously helped Brighton and Hove Albion achieve promotion to FA WSL 2, and she is also a talented cricketer having represented England at Academy level.
Cooper told the club's website: "It is a dream of mine to join a pro club so to be here is an amazing feeling. I have worked my way through the football ranks and am delighted to have done enough to earn a contract with Chelsea.
"I got invited for a two-day trial here and was ecstatic with that, but after two days they asked me to say a bit longer so Emma could have more of a look at me and after that they offered me a contract!
"I must admit I had a little cry as I had given everything to earn it and was delighted that my efforts were being rewarded.
"Emma has told me she likes my attitude and while I have some things to work on she said if I keep working hard, as I did in the trial, there is no reason I can't challenge for a place in the team."
