Transfer: Arsenal complete Williams signing


Arsenal Ladies have completed the signing of England international and Nigeria’s Azizat Oshoala’s team mate Fara Williams from Liverpool Ladies.

The 31-year-old midfielder is England’s most-capped player of all time, having represented her country 148 times.

Williams was part of the squad that finished third at last year’s World Cup and was awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours list.

“Fara is a great competitor and a fantastic character, too.

“She is a player with huge experience at club and international level, and her reading and understanding of games is fantastic.” Gunners boss Pedro Martinez Losa said as quoted on BBC Sports.

Williams, who has also had spells at Chelsea, Charlton and Everton, helped the Reds win the FA Women’s Super League title in 2013 and 2014.

Arsenal have not disclosed the length of her contract, but Williams tweeted she had signed with the north London side for two years.
