Here you can keep across all the business done by Marc Skinner’s side in the window, ahead of the new season.

Our captain spoke to the PFA prior to making this trip, expressing her commitment to her new role.

"Often the people ‘higher up’ have not been through or had the same experiences we have and so myself and Danielle Carter [PFA Players’ Board member] try and put the voice across, and our opinions and experiences across, as much as we can for the female side of the game," she began.

"Hopefully we’re doing that well!”

"Obviously, I’m the captain at Manchester United and I’ve had experiences with taking people’s voices and opinions and taking it higher up.

"I’m in a really privileged position with my club where my voice is heard, and I can liaise with the staff to make change. I really wanted to do that on a bigger scale.

"Hopefully I can take the opinions of [players from across] the league and the other teams and try to improve the women’s game."

Good luck in your new role, Katie!
