Sunderland Ladies have signed Norway Under-23 goalkeeper Hilde Gunn Olsen from Arna Biørnar.

The 23-year-old previously played for Champions League quarter-finalists Linkoping, representing the Swedish club twice in the competition.

"I have been highly impressed by the club and what it has to offer," Olsen said.

"The facilities are incredible and I'm looking forward to the opportunity of training full-time," she added.

Olsen is the Women's Super League One club's second signing during the mid-season break after they added Republic of Ireland striker Stephanie Roche to their squad last month.
