Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal Ladies have signed England Under-23 striker Beth Mead from fellow Women’s Super League club Sunderland on an undisclosed-length full-time deal.
The 21-year-old joins the Women’s FA Cup holders ahead of the 2017 WSL 1 Spring Series, which begins in April. Her move comes after Sunderland – who finished seventh in the top flight last season – reverted to part-time status.
Widely-tipped as a future England star, Mead earned her first senior call-up in 2015 but is yet to win her first cap.
The Whitby-born forward, who had a contract with Sunderland until 2019, has netted 10 times in 25 appearances for England at various youth levels.
