Championship newcomers Newcastle United’s latest signing is veteran England international and former Man City player Demi Stokes.

The 32-year-old has 69 appearances for the Lionesses and has spent the last nine years at Manchester City, winning nine major trophies.

“I still have a lot to give on the pitch and I’m excited to bring my experience to a club with such big ambitions. From the moment I spoke to the club, I felt valued and knew this was the right place to contribute to a new and exciting project.”

Manager Becky Langley said: “Demi is one of the best defenders in the country and we are delighted that she is joining Newcastle United.

“She is an incredibly humble girl, as well as being an ambitious and driven Northerner. We can’t wait to welcome her to the club.”
