Sheffield United Women are delighted to announce the signing of versatile forward Mia Enderby from Leeds United's Regional Talent Centre.
The 16-year-old has also been involved with the England youth teams and can play all across the front line, either on the left wing, right wing or through the middle.
A quick turn of pace and close control, Enderby ended last season in good form for Leeds United's RTC and has impressed since training with Neil Redfearn's first team, leading to her involvement in several first team friendlies so far in pre-season.
Starting out as a product of the Blackburn Rovers academy, Newsham joined Manchester City and then Manchester United, making several first team appearances in pre-season friendlies.
Enderby, who only turned 16 in May, scored eight goals in as many games for Leeds towards the end of last season and the teenager is delighted to be making the step up.
"I'm really excited and I'm really honoured to be representing such a big club in the Championship," she said. "I'm so young so it's a massive change for me but all the players and all the coaches have been so welcoming, my transition has been really good."
Discussing the latest exciting young addition to the squad, head coach Redfearn added: "She's an outstanding find. Rich Meek and Shaun Hird have done great to get her over the line. She's been in the England set up, she's an unbelievable talent.
"I've worked with players in the men's and women's game through youth academies who have done well and I look at Mia and she's got something I don't see much of, her game understanding is unbelievable."
Sheffield United are also delighted to confirm that Alethea Paul and Ellie Wilson have signed new deals at the club and will remain Blades for the 2021-22 season.
Paul first joined the club back at the start of their first FA Women's Championship campaign in 2018 from Manchester City and has made 37 appearances across her three seasons as a Blade.
Reinventing herself as a full back across the past couple of seasons, Paul's versatility to be able to play defence or her natural attacking midfield role has ensured she has always been a constant presence in the squad, up until picking up an ACL injury last season shortly before Christmas.
Ahead of the new campaign and a return to the pitch, Paul is looking forward to getting back on the pitch ahead of the new season: "It feels great, I can't wait really. It's obviously been a tough one having the injury in December and then my surgery in January, but I can't wait to crack on. The new group of girls seem great and I'm really looking forward to it.
"I feel really strong. I've not felt any issues so far and it's been a massive boost having everyone else back in now because it can get lonely during rehab. I'm really enjoying it at the moment."
Wilson joined the club last summer from London Bees and made an immediate impact, starting the side's first five games of the new season before picking up a concussion against Coventry United in September.
After a period on the sidelines, Wilson returned in December against Blackburn Rovers, only to cruelly tear her ACL during the match which ruled her out for the rest of the campaign.
"I'm buzzing to be staying here, honestly," she said. "I'm absolutely delighted to be here for another year. I enjoyed my first year, from the minute I came in and I'm looking forward to the new season.
"I've been on the grass now, running too which is a good step in what is a long process for me with the injury and with the girls being back in, that's been a morale boost too, so I'm buzzing at the moment."
