Jill Roord cannot wait to play in the Women's Super League again after trading Wolfsburg for Manchester City.

Capped 86 times by the Netherlands, Roord was previously on Arsenal's books between 2019 and 2021. 

And the midfielder is looking forward to get stuck in with her new team-mates after the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. 

Roord, 26, said: "I'm very happy and it's a very proud feeling for me to sign for Manchester City. 

"I have always thought this was a fantastic club with lots of quality and I'm super excited to start here. 

"I really like the way they play and I feel it suits me perfectly. There’s a lot of quality in the team and it's a young side with plenty of potential, which is very important to me. 

"I've always thought the WSL is very competitive, so playing in England again is like a dream — I feel I have developed a lot as a player during my time in Germany. 

"If you play for City, you compete for everything you are involved in and that is what we will be aiming to do. 

"With the quality we have here, anything is possible so I hope we will be very successful together."

Roord has signed a three-year deal with City, who finished fourth in the WSL last season. 

Boss Gareth Taylor said: "We're really pleased to have been able to secure Jill's signature and bring her to the club. 

"She has proven her worth in both England and Europe during her career so far, alongside on the international stage with the Netherlands. She is no stranger to success. 

"She is a player whose calibre speaks for itself with what she has achieved and we believe she will be a fantastic addition to our squad. 

"We're looking forward to welcoming her aboard and working with her."
