BREAKING: Every WSL done deal as January transfer window slams shut

- Advertisement -

Deadline day is over and the January transfer window is firmly shut.

For the 12 WSL clubs it has been a busy month of activity, with huge moves across the league that could impact both the title race and the battle to avoid the drop from now until May. Tottenham made the early splash of the window, signing Beth England from London rivals Chelsea for a domestic record fee.

Spurs also signed Mana Iwabuchi from Arsenal on loan, while Jordan Nobbs ended her lengthy spell at the Gunners to join Aston Villa. Man United signed highly-rated Norwegian Lisa Naalsund to strengthen their title challenge and Leicester brought in five new faces to help their battle against the drop.

Arsenal nearly completed the biggest deal of all when they submitted a world record bid for Man Utd’s Alessia Russo on the eve of deadline day. However, the WSL league leaders refused to let the England forward leave and rejected the approach.

Here is every done deal from the window.
