Leicester City Women have signed three teenage talents as they push for promotion next season.
The club’s first signing of the summer saw 17-year-old Aimee Everett arrive from Liverpool Women, where she was part of the FA WSL Development title-winning side last season.
Everett has represented England at Under-18 level but left Liverpool at the end of last season.
“I wanted to come to Leicester City because the Club and Jonathan’s philosophy both fitted with my style of play,” Everett told lcwfc.com.
“His involvement and trust in youth really enticed me to come to this Club and I want to test myself in a big league.”
The midfielder is joined at Leicester by former Liverpool teammate Annabel Blanchard, who captained the Reds to development title glory.
Blanchard scored 10 goals in 14 games last season and is hoping to continue her form over into senior football.
“I wanted a new challenge,” she said. “I was looking to develop more as a player and put myself into a new environment. The Club have been very welcoming, I get a family feel from the Club, they’ve made me feel comfortable.”
Also joining the club is striker Lachante Paul from Arsenal Women.
Paul, 17, won the FA WSL Academy Cup last season and made her senior debut last December after catching the eye of first team manager Joe Montemurro.
“I joined Leicester City because it’s a Club with great prospects. It’s a Club that pushes young players. I’m hoping I can help the Club get promotion.”
