Women's Super League club Tottenham Hotspur have signed defender Gracie Pearse from Crystal Palace.

The 18-year-old, who featured seven times for the Eagles last season, has agreed a two-year contract with Spurs.

An England Under-21 international, Pearse will re-join Palace on loan for the 2021-22 Championship campaign.

"Gracie has had experience at England youth level and she's shown a lot of promise during her career so far," head coach Rehanne Skinner said.external-link

"We want to nurture young players and help them to gain the experience that they need.

"In Gracie's case that will involve her gaining match minutes in a loan capacity at Crystal Palace initially, while we monitor and support her very closely."

Tottenham have not disclosed the terms of Pearse's transfer.
