Women's Super League champions Liverpool have announced three signings ahead of the new season, which begins in March.

American central defender Satara Murray, 21, joins from North Carolina Tar Heels, having previously played for Washington Spirit.

Full-back Ingrid Ryland arrives from Norwegian Toppserien side Arna-Bjornar.

The 25-year-old is joined by countrywoman and Klepp IL striker Line Krogedal Smorsgard, 27.

Last October, Liverpool retained their Women's Super League title on goal difference on a dramatic final day of the season.

The Reds started third - three points behind leaders Chelsea - but defeated Bristol 3-0, while the Blues lost 2-1 at Manchester City.
