Aimee Palmer signs for the Blades

21 August 2019

Sheffield United have added Manchester United midfielder Aimee Palmer to their squad on a season-long loan deal.

Palmer, 19, played in the FA Women's Super League for Bristol City in 2017-18 and impressed enough that she was signed by Casey Stoney for Man United's debut season in last year's FA Women's Championship.

The midfielder, who can also play in defence, made 13 league appearances for the reds last season and was recently part of the England Under-19 side at the European Championships in Scotland earlier this summer.

The teenager made her FA WSL debut as a 16-year-old for Bristol City in the 2017 Spring Series before going on to become a regular in the side the season after, showing her talent despite her young age.

Palmer reunited with her former manager Willie Kirk at Man United last season, helping the team to the FA Women's Championship title.

Palmer follows in the footsteps of Fran Bentley, Naomi Hartley and Ebony Salmon in joining on loan from the newly-promoted FA WSL side, and manager Carla Ward is delighted to add another exciting young talent to her squad.

"Aimee is a great addition to the squad," said the manager. "Her level of maturity at such a young age is something to admire, she will certainly add a huge amount of competition to an already competitive squad."
