DONE DEAL | Gracie Pearse joins on loan

Gracie Pearse

Charlton Athletic are delighted to announce the loan signing of Gracie Pearse from Tottenham Hotspur until the end of the season.

The central defender, who lifted the Barclays Women's Championship title with Bristol City last season, expressed her delight after joining the Addicks. She said: "I'm really excited to get started and to meet all of the girls properly.

"For me, I've always known that Charlton is a good side and an ambitious side so I definitely think that's a key thing that brought me to be here.

"I'm quite a confident player on the ball, especially with my feet I'm quite composed and like to drive forward and to find pockets in the midfield." 

Pearse began her career with Arsenal's academy before making a permanent move to Spurs in the summer of 2021 and has enjoyed spells with Crystal Palace and Bristol City over the last two seasons.

Karen Hills' side will be back in action this Sunday, taking on Ipswich Town in round four of the Adobe Women's FA Cup. 

The deal is subject to FA approval.
