Manchester United is delighted to announce Signe Bruun has joined the club on loan until the end of the season.

The deal is subject to obtaining a work permit. The 23-year-old striker joins from Olympique Lyonnais and has previously had spells at Paris Saint-Germain and Fortuna Hjørring.

Bruun currently has 19 caps for Denmark and has scored 14 goals for her country. She was also recently voted as Denmark’s Player of the Year.
Signe Bruun said: “It’s amazing to be here, I’m really happy to be joining Manchester United. It is a big club with huge history, I have followed the women’s project for a while and have seen the progression of the team, and I think this move was a perfect match for me.

“I want to be able to help the team as much as possible during my time here, hopefully with a lot of goals but also a lot of hard work too. I can’t wait to get started on the training pitch with the players and staff ahead of a busy period of games.”
Marc Skinner said: “We are delighted to welcome Signe to the club, she is an exceptional player, and it really shows the ambition of the club in securing this move. Signe’s talent speaks for itself but her ability to find the narrowest of spaces in the box and be so deadly in front of goal is something that we’re really excited to see.

“She is still so young and will definitely compliment the fantastic talent we already have in this team. She also has that experience of big games, especially in the Champions League, so we’re all looking forward to seeing her thrive here.”
