Women's Super League club Brighton & Hove Albion have signed England Under-20 forward Ellie Brazil from Italian Serie A side Fiorentina.

The 19-year-old played for Birmingham City before moving to the Viola last summer and has agreed a two-year deal.

"Ellie has already gained valuable experience playing in both England and Italy's top division," Seagulls manager Hope Powell said.

"She'll add to the competition already in our squad."
