Sheffield United have added Manchester United goalkeeper Emily Ramsey to their squad on loan for the rest of the season.

The 19-year-old arrives to bolster Carla Ward's options between the sticks with Becky Flaherty currently out injured, joining Mollie Green in arriving from Casey Stoney's side this month.

Ramsey joined Man United in 2018 from Liverpool and made two league appearances as the team won the FA Women's Championship, keeping clean sheets in both her games against Lewes and Millwall respectively.

The England youth team international played against FA WSL side Birmingham City in the Continental Cup and she could make her Blades debut against the same opponent in the FA Cup this Sunday.

With Emily Batty impressing in the absence of Flaherty at Coventry United last week, Ramsey will add further competition in goal and is looking forward to getting going with the team.

"I'm really excited to get the move sorted. I've only heard positive things about the club and they've been having a really successful season so far so I'm looking forward to getting some game time to challenge myself and to work with this team for the rest of the season."

Manager Ward is also thrilled to be able to bring another quality player to the club ahead of a big second half of the season.

"Emily comes with a lot of quality and already you can see she's hungry to get going with us and show what she's about. It's a great move at this time for both parties."
