Arsenal and England legend Rachel Yankey one of three Notts County Ladies deadline day signings

Joe Jones

Notts County Ladies have secured a trio of high profile signings on transfer deadline day ahead of the start of the new Women’s Super League season.

First confirmed to join the Lady Pies on a busy day was Australia international Aivi Luik, who has just won the W-League title with Melbourne City in her native country.

The 31-year-old defender, who has also played with Brisbane Roar, Perth Glory and Danish side Brondby, has signed for a year.

Next up was former Birmingham City and Doncaster Rovers full-back Chelsea Weston, 26, whose contract length has not been disclosed.

Last but by no means least was the signing of Arsenal Ladies legend Rachel Yankey, who joins the Lady Pies on an initial 66-day loan.

The England international started her career at the Gunners before re-joining them in 2005, remaining at the London club for the past eleven years, and has also made 129 appearances for the Lionesses.

All three players will be available for Sunday’s SSE Women’s FA Cup 5th round encounter against Durham Women at Meadow Lane (KO 2pm).
