New Liverpool Ladies manager Matt Beard has continued his winter recruitment by signing midfielder Amanda Da Costa.

Da Costa, a United States Under-23 international, spent last season playing for Boston Breakers.

"I am thrilled to be joining a club with such a unique culture and history," she told the club website.

Manager Beard added: "Amanda is a great signing for us. She is an energetic central midfielder, has great feet and will be a great asset."

The Reds have strengthened significantly since the end of last season, adding the likes of England international Fara Williams and Everton duo Natasha Dowie and Lucy Bronze to their squad ahead of the new campaign.
