Martha Thomas said:

“I’m excited to be joining Manchester United, I’ve been impressed with the success the club has had over the last few years and that was a real drive for me to come here. I want to be enjoying my football again and I’m looking forward to challenging myself in this environment and being part of an attacking team where I can express myself. My focus right now is on settling in and putting in the hard work at training, but I can’t wait for the season to start and to see all the fans back in the stadium.”

Football Director, John Murtough, said:

“We are delighted to have secured another fantastic signing in Martha. She is an exciting young striker who has shown her talent at both club and international level. Martha is a real threat in front of goal and will bolster our attack ahead of next season. We are looking forward to seeing her make her mark at United.”
