Midfielder Jade Moore is excited by a new challenge after moving to Notts County from Birmingham City.

Moore and England team-mate Jo Potter became the first players in the women's game to buy themselves out of contracts when they left City in June.

The pair then signed for Notts County on six-month deals.

"Myself and Jo both felt it was the right time to get out and push on in our footballing careers," the 25-year-old told BBC Sport.

"Six years at a club is a long time. I just want to be happy, play football and be happy off the pitch as well on it".

At Notts, Moore has linked up again with Rick Passmoor, her manager previously at former club Leeds United, and said he has made the transition very easy.

"It's been great to get back in touch with Rick, he hasn't changed one little bit," she said.

"Hopefully it'll be a budding relationship for the next six months."

County have had a mixed start to the season and are currently sixth in the Women's Super League table, with just two victories from eight matches.

However, Moore admitted it was the club's ambition that attracted her to Meadow Lane.

"When I spoke with Rick, he said they were aiming for the fourth position and a cup," she added.

"There are high aspirations, but at the minute we need to take it game by game, start to score some goals, keep pushing on and then see where we end up."
