We are delighted to announce the signing of Rachel Williams.
The 32-year-old has signed a contract with the Club that will run until 2021, with the option to extend for a further year and will wear the number 10 shirt.
The former Birmingham City forward had two spells with the Blues from 2011 and 2017, where she made 94 appearances and scored 43 goals, including a goal in the 2012 Women’s FA Cup final which saw City overcome Chelsea in a penalty shoot-out to win the trophy.
Rachel began her career at home-town club Leicester City where she progressed through their centre of excellence to reach the senior team, before spending two years at Doncaster Rovers Belles in 2008.
She re-signed for Leicester City two years later and also had a spell at Chelsea in 2014 before moving to Notts County the following year.
At international level, Rachel has 13 caps for England and represented Great Britain in the 2012 London Olympics.
Rachel said: “I was really impressed with Spurs when I played against them while at Birmingham and after speaking to Karen and Juan, I really do feel this is the right challenge for me in the next stage of my career.
“I think Spurs can be a real threat next season and I want to achieve as much as possible with the team.
“I have been around in the women’s game for a while now so I have a lot of experience which I am hoping will help the squad to move closer to achieving our goals.”
The deal is subject to regulatory processes being completed.
