“I felt like it was the right time [to come to England]. Wolfsburg is a really good club and I felt at home but I'm I was looking for a new adventure and Brighton is the best next step in my career. I’m really looking forward to everything.

“The club are very ambitious and I'm personally very ambitious too. I like the professional surroundings here; everything is at a high level and I want to contribute to a better team performance and help the club in the WSL.

“I think what we have here at Brighton is special. I've been with a few clubs, and I know that it's not like this everywhere.”
