Manchester United can confirm that goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley has joined fellow Barclays Women’s Super League side Brighton and Hove Albion on a permanent deal.

Baggaley joined United in July 2021 and went on to make 10 appearances in goal for the club – with her debut arriving in October 2021's penalty shootout win over Durham in the League Cup.
Sophie has been a mainstay of United’s squad since joining from Bristol City and featured four times during the 2022/23 campaign, which saw the team finish second in the WSL, secure Champions League qualification for the first time, and make it to a maiden FA Cup Final.

Everyone at Manchester United would like to place on record their sincere thanks to Sophie for her loyal service, and she will always be welcome at Carrington and Leigh Sports Village.
