WALES international Carrie Jones has sealed a loan deal at Leicester from Manchester United for the coming season.

The forward has signed on a season-long loan deal from Women’s Super League side United.

The Newtown teenager first came through the ranks at Cardiff and has made 10 senior appearances for the Red Devils.

Jones told LCFC TV: “Hopefully I can help this team to success. I’m still only 18 years of age and at a club like Leicester in the WSL, I think it will be a really good move for me.

“Having my debut at 15, going on my first Wales camp at 14, I’ve had a lot of experience. I think it’s an advantage for me, hopefully I can use that.

“That was really challenging but all those experiences will help me get to know the team and settle in.”

United head coach Marc Skinner said: “Part of the great culture of our club is the continued belief in the development of our younger players.

“This move is a perfect opportunity for Carrie to gain the valuable experience she needs to continue her personal and professional development.”
