Notts County Ladies announce the signing of Rachel Yankey from Arsenal Ladies on an initial 66 day loan deal.
England international Rachel Yankey has been at Arsenal Ladies for the past eleven years, the prolific striker is one of England’s most capped players with 129 appearances.
Yankey will be available for Sunday’s SSE Women’s FA Cup 5th round encounter against Durham Women.
Manager Rick Passmoor said on the club’s official website: “I don’t think I need to mention the quality that Rachel possesses, everyone in and around the game is more than aware of the devastating effect she can have on a game.”
“Rachel is a fantastic attacking option for us to have at our disposal and I’m delighted to bring her to Meadow Lane.”
Notts County Ladies recently signed Australia international defender Aivi Luik on a two-year deal as well as securing a contract with the ex-Birmingham City and Doncaster Belles defender Chelsea Weston.
