Winger Gemma Davison and defender Sophie Howard have joined Reading Women for next season's Women's Super League.

Scotland international Howard, 24, who switched allegiance from Germany, has made the move from 1899 Hoffenheim.

Davison, 31, was part of Chelsea's league and FA Cup double-winning squad last season and has also lifted the WSL 1 title with previous club Liverpool.

"I think Reading were by far the toughest team I came up against last season," said Davidson.

Reading manager Kelly Chambers added: "Gemma is a fantastic player, who will be a great addition to our squad."
