Women's Super League One club Liverpool have signed England internationals Jess Clarke and Laura Coombs before the 2017 WSL 1 Spring Series.

Versatile forward Clarke, 27, has signed from Notts County Ladies, where she spent the previous six years.

She scored five times in 15 league appearances for Notts last season.

Coombs, 26, who has two England caps and spent 2016 on a season-long loan at Liverpool from Chelsea Ladies, has joined the Reds on a permanent deal.

Liverpool, who finished fifth in WSL 1 last season, begin their Spring Series campaign away to promoted Yeovil Town on 23 April, following their Women's FA Cup semi-final at Manchester City on 17 April.
