Jade Moore has joined Manchester United Women in a deal until the end of the 2022/23 season.

The England international is fighting to get back fit and help the Red Devils qualify for Champions League football.

Manchester United Women Confirm Jade Moore as Second Addition of Day

Two in One Day for Club Who Left it Late and There Could Be One More

Manchester United earlier announced the addition of experienced Republic of Ireland defender Diane Caldwell and have followed that up with a second signing in quick succession.

Jade Moore, capped 50 times by England, has reunited with Marc Skinner, United’s head coach, who she worked with previously at Birmingham City and Orlando Pride.

Skinner’s United are on their best run with six consecutive wins, all whilst not conceding. United are third in the Women’s Super League, behind only Arsenal and Chelsea, who both have a game in hand.

United’s target remains Champions League qualification for the first time since formation in 2018 and they are well on course to achieve the top three finish that would achieve that, though, there is plenty of time to go and games to be played.

In other news, the Daily Telegraph’s Tom Garry reports Manchester United are close to signing Denmark international striker Signe Bruun on loan from Lyon.

Bruun’s track record is impressive and could be a coup signing for the Red Devils.

Proud Moment to Join the Red Devils

Jade Moore told manutd.com: “I’m delighted to be here at a club like Manchester United; it’s a proud moment after a difficult period for me. It’s great to be back in this league too, I have a lot of experience in the WSL, having played in it for around a decade, and I think I can bring some of that to this team.”

“I’m also looking forward to working under Marc again and getting to know my new team-mates, the group here is thriving and I’m excited to be part of it. For me, this was the right move in my career at this time and I’m going to work as hard as possible to get fit and be in contention.”

Marc Skinner added: “Jade is a brilliant midfielder, I’ve obviously worked with her in previous roles at Birmingham and Orlando and I know the real qualities she can bring to the squad. She is an intelligent player with a great football mind, who has the ability to read and control games.

“She’s been unlucky in the last year with the injury she picked up but we’ve been working with Jade on plans to get her back to full fitness as quickly as possible and we are looking forward to seeing her impact within the squad.”

Manchester United get their FA Cup campaign underway at the weekend with a fourth-round tie at Bridgwater United on January 30.
