We are delighted to announce the signing of Kerys Harrop.
The 29-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract with the Club that will run until 2022 and will wear the number five shirt.
The former Birmingham City captain spent 20 years with the Blues overall, making her senior debut at 15 years old after progressing through their centre of excellence.
The defender was part of the Blues’ side who finished runners-up in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League (WSL) for two consecutive seasons in 2011 and then again in 2012, the year in which they won the Women’s FA Cup.
With 135 WSL appearances, Kerys is one of the most experienced players in the league and appeared 10 times for Birmingham in all competitions last season, including six league starts.
Kerys has represented the England national team at Under-19 level, winning the European Women’s Under-19 Championship in 2009, as well as at Under-23 level and was called up to the senior squad in 2013.
Kerys said: “Coming to Spurs is a very exciting challenge for me and I know that the Club are heading in a positive direction.
“I want to continue to develop as a player under the management of Karen and Juan, and give my all to the Club both on and off the pitch.
"Having previously played in FA Cup finals and in the Champions League, I want to experience that again and I'm hopeful of doing that here at Spurs."
The deal is subject to regulatory processes being completed.
