Beth England: Tottenham set to sign Chelsea striker and break UK transfer record | Soccer News


Tottenham are close to signing striker Beth England from Chelsea for a national record for a British player.

The deal is worth £250,000 and will break the current record, which was set by Lauren James’ £200,000 move from Manchester United to Chelsea in 2021.

England are expected to complete the move when the transfer window opens next week.

The 28-year-old has scored 70 goals in 148 games for Chelsea but has only featured six times this season.

England are keen to gain more regular football after losing their place in the England squad, with the World Cup coming this summer.

Liverpool have re-signed defender Gemma Bonner

Former Liverpool captain and Women’s Super League champion Gemma Bonner will return to the club for a second stint from January 1.

The 31-year-old defender led Liverpool to back-to-back WSL titles in 2013 and 2014 before leaving for Manchester City in 2018.

Bonner, who has been capped 11 times by England, said: “It’s quite a special moment for me. I still pinch myself when I arrive at Anfield.

“I’m super excited to be back and can’t wait to get the shirt back on and hang out with the girls and come back and play for Liverpool.

“I was here for a while before and it was a tough decision to leave, but I think I always knew in myself that one day I would like to come back to Liverpool. Now the time is right.

“One of the things I’ve been most proud of is lifting those trophies, especially one after the other.

“I have incredible memories of my time here before. Growing up as a Liverpool fan probably means a bit more. Seeing my shirt again today with the name on the back was almost a bit emotional.”
