    Manchester United have made Norway international Lisa Naalsund their third signing of the January transfer window following the arrivals of Jayde Riviere and Estelle Cascarino at the weekend.

    Naalsund joins from SK Brann in her homeland and has signed a three and a half year contract with United until the summer of 2026. Only Ella Toone currently has a deal as long.

    The 27-year-old arrives in Manchester to a couple of familiar faces in international colleagues Vilde Boe Risa and Maria Thorisdottir.

    United head of women’s football Polly Bancroft has described Naalsund as a ‘proven winner’ and a sign of the club’s ambition to ‘finish as high up the WSL table as possible’.

    Naalsund herself said, “Manchester United is a great football club and I’m very excited to be here. The club is full of nice people and I’m really looking forward to playing in front of the amazing fans. It’s great to come to a club that has everything to play for this season – I love that.”

    Meanwhile, United manager Marc Skinner commented, “We’re excited to welcome Lisa to Manchester United; where she will bring a wealth of top-level experience, playing in the heart of midfield. Her mentality, box to box driving runs, and desire to win, will continue to add a variance of skill and quality to the team. We look forward to integrating her into our group.”
