Manchester United are delighted to announce the signing of England international Gabby George on a permanent deal.

The defender returns to United, having started her career in our Centre of Excellence, before departing for Everton, where she went on to become their first player to sign professional in 2017.

George was capped by England at Under-17 to Under-23 level, before making her full international debut in the Lionesses’ 6-0 World Cup qualifying win over Kazakhstan in September 2018.
