Notts County Ladies: Laura Bassett & Alex Greenwood join

Laura Bassett
Bassett has won 43 England caps and was part of the Chelsea side that almost won the Women's Super League last season

Notts County Ladies have signed England defenders Laura Bassett and Alex Greenwood and have recruited England Under-23 striker Jess Sigsworth.

Central defender Bassett, 31, has won 43 caps and joins on a three-year deal after leaving last season's Women's Super League runners-up Chelsea.

Full-back Greenwood, 21, has six full caps and joins from Everton Ladies, who were relegated.

Sigsworth, 20, has moved to Meadow Lane from second-tier side Doncaster.

Bassett, Greenwood and Sigsworth follow Rachel Williams in signing for Notts boss Rick Passmoor, after the arrival of the versatile England forward, 26, on Monday.

Passmoor, whose side finished sixth in the eight-team WSL last season, was thrilled with his latest additions.

"These are three players with international pedigree, who all add something very valuable to our squad," he said.

"Laura has a host of experience, at both the top domestic level and international level and that will benefit everyone in our squad.

"Alex has a lot of promise behind her, promise that she has already shown at the top international level and we hope she will continue to develop here and become a top international player.

"Jess is still progressing through the international age groups and has already been recognised at Under-23 age level, despite only being 19 at the time."
