Sheffield United Women have signed versatile defender Nat Johnson from fellow FA Women's Championship side Leicester City.

Johnson has spent a large part of her career with the Foxes, making over 100 appearances for the club across two separate spells.

United's most recent signing of the summer comes with plenty of experience and her versatility means she can play across the back line and even in midfield.

The 26-year-old started her career in Leicester's Centre of Excellence, going on to spend several seasons in the first team before moving to play and study for four years at college in South Carolina.

Johnson returned to the Foxes in 2016 where she remained until this summer, before signing for the Blades ahead of the new campaign.

The defender is also capped for Northern Ireland, making her debut in March 2019 in the same friendly competition as current United number one Becky Flaherty.

Swapping blue for red and white, Johnson can't wait to get going as the team looks to go one better than last season.

""I've had a really good first few weeks, I've really enjoyed it. It's been so welcoming which has been great and I'm buzzing to be a part of the club.

"For me it was about seeing how competitive the team was last season and what a hard-working, professional group they are and I wanted to be a part of that."
