Arsenal Ladies have signed Dutch internationals Dominique Janssen and Sari Van Veenendaal.

Defender Janssen, 20, joins from SGS Essen after two years with the German Bundesliga club.

Goalkeeper Van Veenendaal, 25, has won four league titles in five years with Dutch side FC Twente.

"We are very pleased to welcome two excellent new players to our squad," Arsenal manager Pedro Martinez Losa told the club website.

"Sari is a fantastic young keeper with lots of international experience. She will provide good competition for the number one jersey.

"Dominique is strong player with good technical attributes and a good character. She is a versatile player and will be able to help the team in a lot of different areas."

Van Veenendaal's arrival comes 24 hours after England goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain moved to the Gunners' Women's Super League rivals Notts County on loan.

Both Van Veenendaal and Janssen were part of the Netherlands squad that reached the last 16 of the Women's World Cup in Canada.
