Goalkeeper Emily Ramsey has joined Everton on a free transfer, signing a three-year contract with the Club until the end of June 2026.
The 22-year-old England youth international returns to the Blues after spending last season on loan with Brian Sorensen’s side, making eight Women’s Super League appearances and finishing the season boasting the best save percentage in the division (82.5 per cent).
Ramsey becomes the Club’s second permanent signing of the summer following the arrival of Italy international striker Martina Piemonte, while Aurora Galli also committed her future to Everton with a new deal earlier this week.
The highly-rated Ramsey, who was called into the senior England squad in February, makes the permanent switch to Merseyside after the expiry of her contract at Manchester United, where she made six senior appearances having come through the Red Devils’ academy.
“It feels great to be back at Everton and for it to be permanently this time,” Ramsey told evertontv.
“I really enjoyed my time here last season.
“To have signed a three-year deal is massive. I think that’ll help me moving into the new season, knowing I have the full support and backing of the Club.
“Feeling like I belong here, that I’m valued, will help me and push me forward.
“I really enjoyed the way we played last season, the style of play from the manager, and the environment of the group.
“We had some great fans supporting us and we had a good season.
“I see potential in this team and in this club. They’re looking to do good things and I want to be a part of it.
“I’m happy to be here and to get going.”
After helping Sorensen’s side make encouraging progress last season while competing for a starting spot with Republic of Ireland international Courtney Brosnan, Ramsey hopes Everton can build on the foundations laid and kick on.
“First and foremost, I want to play and to perform well for the team,” she added.
“I feel we’re pushing up towards the top teams in the league now. This team can take a step towards that.
