London City Lionesses is thrilled to announce that forward Danielle Carter has signed a two-year contract with the Pride.
The Londoner arrives at Princes Park after the expiry of her contract with Barclays Women’s Super League outfit Brighton & Hove Albion, for whom she scored nine times last season.
Carter, who can play anywhere across the forward line, boasts a wealth of elite-level experience for club and country, headlined by eleven trophy-filled seasons with Arsenal.
The 30-year-old was involved in many iconic moments while dressed in red and helped the Gunners secure five Continental Tyres Cups, four FA Cups, and three Women’s Super League titles.
Carter is also the author of an impressive international record, with six goals in four appearances for England.
"I had conversations with Nicola [Williams] and Carolina [Morace] and the vision they set out for the Club was very exciting," the attacker said upon signing with London City.
"Promotion is obviously the main aim this season, that's the dream we are all collectively working towards. We need to get points on the board very quickly and build from there. It's an exciting prospect."
Carter is the latest player to join Carolina Morace’s experienced core and will reunite with former teammates Emma Mukandi and Grace Moloney at Princes Park.
"Danielle's talent and experience will be important for the team," said the Italian.
"She has played at the highest level, which is something she can pass to the team. We have already seen how much her presence has impacted the other players because she can be a role model. She's very humble, which is something I really like because it means she is still willing to improve.
"I don't want static [attacking] positions, I want the forwards to interact and rotate. She's very good at dribbling and in one-on-one situations, which is exactly what we need."
Danielle has joined the Pride – and now it’s your chance.
