English Women's Super League leaders Arsenal have signed Denmark winger Katrine Veje from French side Montpellier.

The 27-year-old has won more than 100 caps and had spells playing in Denmark, Sweden and the United States.

Katrine is a fantastic signing for us, she will bring experience and professionalism. She understands what it takes to win trophies and her variety of experience playing in different leagues around the world should help her adapt to the competitive standard of the WSL.

 Katrine added:

Arsenal is a big club. Everyone knows the men’s team and now the women’s team are doing very well. I played against Arsenal in the Toulouse Cup with Montpellier and I really like the style of play and how they move for each other and the group, so I’m very happy to be here.   

English sides are very good. They have a special power and fight for each other, and I like that style of play. I’m very happy that I can understand everything now because it’s in English, so it’s pretty easy for me to get into the group and have conversations with the staff and so on, so I’m very happy to be in Arsenal.   

I heard a lot of good things about Joe and I’ve had a short conversation with him to just chat and I really like him. When I was in Seattle people were talking about him too because a lot of players go to Australia in the off season to play there, so I’m very happy to be here and have Joe as a coach.
