Scotland forward Abbi Grant has joined Women's Super League side Birmingham City after leaving Belgian champions Anderlecht.

The twice-capped 23-year-old scored eight goals in 12 games during her six-month spell in Brussels.

However, it was not enough to earn the ex-Rangers, Glasgow City, Hibernian and Celtic player a spot in Shelley Kerr's Scotland squad for the World Cup.

Blues head coach Marta Tejedor welcomed Grant as a "valuable acquisition".

Talking to the club website, Tejedor added: "Abbi is a young and talented player who will give speed and versatility to our attack in different positions of the field."
