Speaking to Liverpool’s official website Lundgaard said, “I’m looking forward to meeting all the girls, getting started and winning some football games.

“I’ve heard a lot of times that this group is a good group and this is a club with ambitions and I’m looking forward to being a part of it.

“I’m a powerful player, I like to play football, can also defend, get good possession and make a lot of goals.”

Manager Matt Beard added, “Sofie is an exciting young talent who we’ve been monitoring for the past six months or so.

“We’ve been really impressed with her progress so far and are looking forward to seeing how that continues in the future.”

The Reds also announced that Lundgaard will take No.15 for the Reds and has already trained with her new teammates at The Campus training ground.
