Scotland international Jennifer Beattie has signed for Manchester City Women.

The 23-year-old defender will join the Women's Super League side on 3 January from French club Montpellier.

The daughter of former British Lions rugby union player John and sister of Scotland rugby international Johnnie moved to France in 2013 after four successful years at Arsenal Ladies.

Beattie said: "City have their targets set on winning trophies and that's the kind of club I want to be at."

The Blues won their first major trophy last season as they beat holders Arsenal 1-0 to lift the 2014 Continental Cup.
