Liverpool have signed forward Mia Enderby from Sheffield United, the club have confirmed.
The 18-year-old says she is delighted to seal a move to the Reds as it fulfils her ambition of playing in the Women’s Super League:
“It’s like a dream come true. Ever since I was young I’ve wanted to play in the WSL. When I used to talk to my mum, I’d say all I wanted to be was a footballer and my dream was to become the best I can be for my club and my country. I’m just really honoured and really pleased and it’s a big moment for me and my family.”
The teenager scored nine goals for the Blades in the Women’s Championship last season, having established herself as a regular starter for the Yorkshire club.
What do Liverpool fans need to know about Enderby?
The forward only joined Sheffield United at the start of the 2021/22 season, having previously spent time at Leeds’s Regional Talent Centre. However, the move to the Blades proved to be the right choice as, within a month of her arrival, she was handed her senior debut.
It took Enderby until December 2021 to score her first goal, which came against Stourbridge in a Women’s FA Cup tie and she ultimately ended the campaign by winning the club’s Young Player of the Year award. As mentioned already, the striker had an even better second season at United.
In terms of her international career, the teenager has represented England from the Under 14 age group up until the Under 19s.
Enderby is the club’s third addition of the summer
Manager Matt Beard has begun to reshape his first-team squad over the past couple of weeks. Last Wednesday, it was announced that Natasha Flint had joined the Reds from Leicester City.
Just a few days ago, it was confirmed that Jenna Clark had been snapped up from Glasgow City. More signings are expected in the coming days.
