Chelsea Ladies midfielder Laura Coombs has joined WSL rivals Liverpool on a season-long loan deal. 

The news comes after the Blues announced that Birmingham City striker Karen Carney has joined them on a two-year deal.

Coombs, who is 24, has been with the London side since 2011 and has had spells at Arsenal, Nottingham Forest and Los Angeles Strikers.

Speaking to the Liverpool website, Coombs, who won the league and cup double with Chelsea last season, said she was excited about the move:

This is a fantastic move for me and I am really looking forward to the start of the season,” she said.

“I had a great year with Chelsea Ladies last season winning the double but this is a brilliant move for me and hopefully I can help Liverpool Ladies to improve on last season.”
