Manchester United have signed Canada international Adriana Leon on a two-year contract.

Leon turned down the offer of a new deal at West Ham, where she spent three-and-a-half seasons with the East London side, making 59 appearances and scoring 13 goals.

The versatile forward has 81 caps for Canada and was an integral part of the Olympic Gold-winning team at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games.

Leon has scored 23 international goals and sits in the top 10 of Canada’s all-time leading goalscorers.
