Arsenal have confirmed that Jill Roord has joined us from Bayern Munich.
The 22-year-old midfielder started her career with FC Twente, where she developed through the youth ranks, before joining Frauen-Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich in 2017.
Over two seasons Jill made 36 appearances, scoring 12 goals.
Jill comes with Champions League experience, having helped Bayern to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League this season.
The Netherlands international represented her country in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup – and she was also part of the 2017 UEFA Women’s Euro winning squad.
Jill played alongside current Gunners Danielle van de Donk and Vivianne Miedema, as well as former stars Sari van Veenendaal and Dominique Bloodworth.
“I’m really proud that I’m going to be an Arsenal player,” she told Arsenal.com.
“Arsenal is one of the clubs in England that I really like. In women’s football, they’ve always been one of the top clubs. Of course there are some Dutch friends of mine who play there, so I’ve always followed them. I’m really looking forward to it.”
