  • The 17-year-old has represented England at both Under 17 and Under 18 level

Leicester City Women Football Club have signed former Liverpool Women midfielder Aimee Everett who joins the Foxes as the first Summer signing ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

The midfielder joined Liverpool Women from Blackburn Rovers and went on to help the reds lift the FA WSL Development League title last season as well as representing England at Under 17 and Under 18 level.

The youngster becomes Jonathan Morgan’s first signing of the summer as the Club prepares for their second season in the FA Women’s Championship.

Speaking to LCWFC TV, Aimee Everett said: “I wanted to come to Leicester City because the Club and Jonathan’s philosophy both fitted with my style of play.

His involvement and trust in youth really enticed me to come to this Club and I want to test myself in a big league.”

Leicester City Women Manager, Jonathan Morgan said: “Aimee is perfect for the Championship with definite ability to get into the WSL as she gets older.

She’s strong, she’s committed and she’s an enforcer in her area. I’m very pleased to have her on board, she’s an individual who understands what we want to do at Leicester City and also how we can help her.”

“We’ve been fortunate to have a number of closed training sessions with Aimee and she’s excited us already.”

Aimee will join up with her new teammates on Tuesday 24 June as the squad return to pre-season training ahead of the forthcoming 2019/20 campaign.
