Scotland defender Jen Beattie has rejoined Arsenal from Women's Super League rivals Manchester City.

The 28-year-old, who is part of Scotland's squad for this summer's World Cup, has signed a "long-term" contract with the Gunners.

She joined City from French side Montpellier in 2015, going on to help Nick Cushing's side win a domestic cup double in 2018-19.

"Jen is an experienced defender," said Arsenal boss Joe Montemurro.

"We're delighted that she wanted to return back to Arsenal to help us take our success to the next level next season."
