Liverpool Ladies have completed the signing of England international duo Jess Clarke and Laura Coombs.
Twenty-seven year-old Clarke joins the Reds from Notts County Ladies to bolster their attacking options ahead of the upcoming FA Women's Spring Series.
Midfielder Coombs spent the 2016 season on a year's loan with Scott Rogers' side and has now returned to Merseyside permanently ahead of the FA WSL Spring Series.
Jess is a clinical striker who came through the youth setup at Leeds Carnegie Ladies before joining Lincoln Ladies in 2010, spending the last six seasons with the Lady Magpies.
On moving to Merseyside, Clarke said: "I am delighted to join Liverpool Ladies and I'm really looking forward to working alongside the players and Scott (Rogers).
"There is already a great squad of players here and I am confident that we will have a successful Spring Series."
On making the return to Liverpool, Coombs said: "I am absolutely delighted to have re-joined Liverpool Ladies on a permanent deal. Last season I felt as though my game really developed playing regular football so I am really excited about moving here permanently.
"I really enjoyed last season here so I cannot wait for to join back up with the girls and for the Spring Series to start later this month."
Speaking on the acquisitions of Clarke and Coombs, Liverpool Ladies manager Scott Rogers said: "These are both fantastic signings for the Club. Jess will give us more options up front and I am confident that she can prove to be a really important addition to the squad. Jess is lightning quick as well as being clinical in front of goal. She is also proven in the FAWSL so I am delighted to have signed her ahead of upcoming Spring Series.
"I am also really pleased that we have managed to re-sign Laura on a permanent deal. She played a key role for us last season so we are delighted to welcome her back into our squad. Similarly to last season when we managed to sign Laura, a number of other clubs had a strong interest in signing her so we are thrilled that she has chosen to commit her long term future to us."
