Emma Mitchell signs for Tottenham on loan from Arsenal
Emma Mitchell has joined Tottenham Hotspur Women on a loan deal from Arsenal until the end of the season.
Mitchell has made 119 appearances for the Gunners since signing for the club in July 2013.
She started her career at Glasgow City in 2008 and before she joined Arsenal in 2013, Emma had a four-month spell in Germany with Bundesliga side SGS Essen.
She made 15 appearances for the Gunners in their title-winning campaign last season and has featured for on five occasions this season adding the 11th goal against Bristol City in the 11-1 victory.
She also has 60 senior caps for Scotland and has also represented her country at under 17 and 19 level.
Mitchell missed four months of last season after taking some time off due to issues with anxiety but this season has returned stronger than ever.
Emma said: “I’m really pleased to be at the Club, it’s going to be a new challenge for me and I’m looking forward to being part of the squad and meeting the girls ahead of a big game against Manchester City on Sunday.
“After speaking to Karen and Juan, it felt like the best opportunity for me to come here and get some minutes under my belt which is a big focus for me in the new year and it will be nice to be part of helping the team get more points on the board.”
Mitchell will not be eligible to play against Arsenal when the teams meet on February 9th, or if they draw one another in either of the domestic cups.
