Parris completes Man Utd switch from Arsenal

Manchester United have completed the signing of England international Nikita Parris from WSL rivals Arsenal.

The 28-year-old forward has signed a two-year contract after a deal with the Gunners was agreed before this summer's European Championships

Parris has won 67 international caps and featured for the Lionesses at this summer's Women's Euros, as part of the team that were crowned champions following victory over Germany at Wembley.

Parris joined Arsenal last summer after two seasons at Lyon, where she won the Champions League, but only made one start and scored just one WSL goal for the Gunners as they finished in second, a point behind champions Chelsea.

United finished 14 points behind WSL champions last season and hope the signing of Parris can help Marc Skinner's side bridge the gap in their quest for a maiden top-flight title.
